Where history lives again

The Folklore Museum in Dietenheim near Bruneck lies in the heart of the Pustertal valley. It shows the environment of the everyday life of rural population of the past – from the landed gentry and the self-sustaining peasantry to the day labourers. The centrepiece is the baroque Mair am Hof residence with its stately rooms and ethnological collections. The appendant farm building houses numerous agricultural implements and vehicles.
The open-air site containing old, original farmhouses, craft workshops, farm gardens and domestic animals invites visitors to stay and recounts the everyday life of earlier times.
