In 1990 the "Heimatmuseum Tannheimer Tal" opened in an ancient farmhouse in Kienzen, a district of the municipality of Tannheim - on 700 sqm the history of the Tannheimer valley is shown. Numerous exhibits, tools and machines as well as plenty of photos of former days can be admired. The exhibition is completed by the farmhouse itself, all rooms are accessible. The artfully painted wooden furniture, like beds, wardrobes and chests are a sign for wealth.
In the farmhouse old blacksmith's tools, appliances for processing flax and a woodstove can be admired. The exhibition is shown on three floors, also a small dairy, a hunting room, a weaving mill and an ancient cowshed can be visited. The plates provide information about the exhibits - all of them were made available by locals as gifts or donations. One room is also dedicated to historic costumes of the local clubs, among them the traditional band and the Schützen.
The 300-year-old building - known as Stoffler Farmhouse - is a typical Alemannic "Mittelflurhaus" which combines living and farming wing. The single rooms face east. 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 the house available to the museum association of the valley in order to open the Local Museum Tannheimer valley. This association runs also the beautiful Felixé Mina’s House in Tannheim.
