A Museum of Fine Arts in a medieval tower house of the 14th century - that is the Oetz Tower Museum (Turmmuseum Oetz) with its documentation about the Tyrolean Baroque sculptor Matthias Bernhard Braun (1684-1738) and the collection of paintings about the Oetztal Alps. Furthermore, the museum offers special exhibitions about art and tourism in the Oetztal valley.
All the paintings, including the naïve paintings of the "Tuifelemaler" and the landscape painting of Alpinism, come from the Hans Jäger Collection (1937-2012). Already in his early years, he started to collect various documents and items of the Tyrolean culture. In the Eighties, he placed the collection in a barn next to his house which was called "Gallery of the ancient Oetztal valley". In 2003, the State of Tyrol bought the collection and - under the direction of Hans Jäger - the Oetz Tower Museum was established. Today, the Hans Jäger Collection is one of the most important folkloric and art historical private collections in the Alps.
The museum is located in the former aristocratic estate "Tower of Oetz" in the old village centre of Oetz. Once the building was administrative centre of the Frauenchiemsee Monastery in the Oetztal valley, now the beautifully in Renaissance style restored estate offers a journey through history. It was also awarded the Tyrolean Museum Award.
