The varying Local Museum of the Tannheimer Valley invites you to a time journey with plenty of photos.
In 1990 the Heimatmuseum Tannheimer Tal opened in an ancient farmhouse in Kienzen, a district of Tannheim, which tells the history of the valley. Numerous exhibits, tools and machines as well as plenty of photos of former days are shown on 700 sqm. Also the farmhouse itself with its chambers is worth seeing: the wooden furniture, and the artfully painted wardrobes and chests.
The exhibition is shown on three floors, also a small dairy near the kitchen, a hunting room, a weaving mill, an ancient cowshed, appliances for processing flax and a woodstove with an old iron waffle iron can be seen. All of the exhibits were made available by locals as gifts or donations.
The 300-year-old building - known as "Stoffler" - is a typical Alemannic "Mittelflurhaus" which combines living and farming wing. The building has a steep shingle roof like it was common since 1700. The Stoffler Farmhouse is in possession of the municipality of Tannheim which made it available to the museum association of the valley in order to open the Local Museum. This association runs also the beautiful Felixe Mina's House in Tannheim.
During the summer months 2021, the museum stays closed due to renovation works.
