Museum at the Ballhaus

This museum is placed in a building dating back to the 16th century and documents the history of the city of Imst.

The "Museum im Ballhaus" (MiB) is closely connected to the city of Imst and illustrates its history in a very descriptive way. This is the right place for those who are interested in culture and history, as in the museum you can retrace the lively past of the town by objets d'art.

The museum is hosted in a building dating back to the 16th century, which originally was a magazine for cloth balls. This is also the reason why this museum is today called "Ballhaus" (ball house). The ball house was restored, the rooms of the museum were adapted and the Museum at the Ballhaus was opened in 2003. The attic floor is venue for various special exhibitions.

A visit to this museum is like a travel across various epoques, from the urn field culture and the guild system in the Middle Ages to modern arts in Imst. A highlight of the museum is undoubtedly the Ursuline crib of 1790. The 237 figurines are equipped with clothes and embroidery, and the background of the setting is 5 m high, which makes the Ursuline crib the largest crib of Tyrol! Also mining is a topic of the museum, so that a visit can be perfectly combined with a tour to the Open-Air Mining Museum Gurgltal.
