Museum Fiss “s’Paules und s’Seppls House”

The local museum of Fiss is located in an Upper Inntal farmhouse with a large round arch portal.

In the heart of the village centre of Fiss an impressive farmhouse with a large round arch portal, small windows and a beautifully ornamented roof construction is situated. It is an Upper Inntal farmhouse with Rhaeto-Romanic influences and at the same time a parted “Mittelflurhaus” where two families could live. Therefore there are two kitchens and two parlours in the house. The property was exactly divided and listed. The farmhouse is named after the two last families who lived here, it is called the “Pale-Pregenzer-House” or in everyday language “s’Paules and s’Seppls House”.

In the last years, the farm was carefully restructured by the H.G. Merz Museum Architectural Office from Stuttgart. In cooperation with the Museum Association, the Federal Monuments Office, the Tyrolean Cultural Institute and the municipality a concept was developed, so that the house provides space for the local museum now - the farm itself as well as the life of the local people in course of time are the topics. On the walls texts and poems of Isidor Pale, once night guard and gravedigger, still can be found.

The various rooms, like the bedrooms, storerooms, the wainwright’s workshop and even the earth toilet can be visited in the museum. In the barn of the farmhouse, exhibition areas in the form of single boxes were created. There a permanent exhibition about a typical Carnival tradition in Fiss, the “Fisser Blochziehen”, can be admired. The museum places particular value on a child-friendly presentation of the contents, so that also the young guests can experience the former life on a farm.
