Municipal Archive and Museum of Innsbruck

The Municipal Archive and the connected Municipal Museum show the history of Innsbruck, from the beginnings until today.

In the old town of Innsbruck, not far away from the Golden Roof (Goldenes Dachl), the Municipal Archive and Museum of Innsbruck are located. The historic collections of the Municipal Archive offer insight into sources, documents and publications which concern about social, economic, touristic and corporate history of the city of Innsbruck. Among others the confirmation of the town law of Innsbruck from 1239 can be found in the archive, which is the oldest municipal charter.

The collection of the Municipal Archive also comprises about 100,000 photos which document the history of Innsbruck. Most of them are already digitalised just as the poster collection. Therefore a reading room and several PCs are available.

The connected Municipal Museum shows a permanent exhibition of selected documents of the municipal archive. Themes like city foundation, health or tourism are seized. Besides there are various special exhibitions about city history or Tyrolean artists and the time of World War II in Innsbruck. The audio archive offers recordings of radio programmes about the Municipal Archive and Museum.
