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 the Museum at the Armoury (Zeughaus Innsbruck) 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. Also different rooms of the historic building can be admired. Furthermore special exhibitions and tours for families as well as children's birthdays are organised.
