Museum at the Armoury Innsbruck

The Zeughaus in Innsbruck, originally a weapon stockpile, tells the cultural history of Tyrol

Between 1500 and 1505 AD, the emperor Maximilan I. (1459 - 1519) let the Zeughaus build at the gates of Innsbruck. It was the period after the armed conflicts with Switzerland, and in this Armoury the artillery of the emperor was housed, and all artillery pieces and handguns were stored. The old German term "Zeug" was used to mean "gear, equipment".

The Armoury consists of a two-wing building with narrow interconnecting sections, surrounding an inner courtyard. In 1973, it was opened as a museum and represents today an outpost of the Tyrolean State Museum Ferdinandeum: The Museum at the Armoury features its Historical and Technical Collection, with topics such as geology and mineralogy, and the history of economy and politics, including mining and Reformation as well as the Tyrolean freedom fights of 1809.

Among the highlights of this Zeughaus (Armoury) are the Mining Book of Schwaz from 1556, the first road map of Europe from 1520, and the big globes of Peter Anich from the 18th century. The permanent exhibition was rebuilt and reopened in April 2024 and offers now new approaches and interactive stations: It shows the tension between the landscape and the location of the historic Tyrol in the middle of Europe and the people who live and lived here.
