Tiroler Landesmuseum Ferdinandeum

The Tyrolean State Museums Ltd. was founded in 2007; it marked the fusion of the Tiroler Landesmuseum Ferdinandeum with the Zeughaus, the Museum of Tyrolean Folk Art, the Hofkirche, the Museum of the Tyrolean Imperial Riflemen (Kiaserschützenmuseum) and the Folk Song Archives, with the joint objective of documenting the cultural past of Tyrol. At the same time, modern structures, including those of private industry, promote a more efficient exploitation of resources.

The Tyrolean State Museums are profiled as locations for experiencing culture and the arts. The main objective is the research of Tyrol, its nature, history, culture, art, economy and technology and knowledge about the land and its people.

Special exhibitions are designed to open up perspectives and gain insight into the land as well as beyond its borders.

Museum of Tyrolean Folk Art

After extensive reconstructions in 2008/2009, the museum on Universitätsstrasse now presents itself after its 80th anniversary in a completely new guise. The exhibition sections scintillate in their variety, including ‘Miniaturen des Evangeliums’ (‘Gospel Miniatures’ - cribs), ‘Pralles Jahr’ (‘Year Full to Bursting’), ‘Prekäres Leben’ (‘Perilous Life’) ‘Schein und Sein’ (‘Illusion and Reality’ - traditional costumes), the Study Collection, and the Stuben (farmers’ parlours) Tyrolean customs and festivities, national dress, crafts, cribs and much more make up a show to marvel at in a modern museum presentation.

Hofkirche - The Court Church

Mon - Sat 9 am – 5 pm, Sun and public holidays 12.30 - 5 pm

The Innsbruck Hofkirche – the Court Church – houses the most grandiose of all Imperial tombs in Europe, the Cenotaph of Emperor Maximilian I (1459–1519). It is flanked by 28 over-dimensional bronze figures, popularly called the “Schwarze Mander” – the Black Men. They represent the emperor’s dynasty and the models he wished to emulate. Albrecht Dürer and Veit Stoss were among those involved in their design and execution. Marble reliefs by Alexander Colin showing scenes from the life of Emperor Maximilian I adorn the sarcophagus. Saints from the Habsburg Dynasty stand sentinel on the gallery. Maximilian is portrayed kneeling at his sarcophagus – but it remained empty; he was buried in Wiener Neustadt.

Other sightseeing highlights are the Ebert organ (1558), the Silver Chapel, and the last resting place of the Tyrolean freedom fighter Andreas Hofer.
