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.
Easter egg hunt
The museum opens on Easter Monday, the 6th of April. We'll be glad to see you!
On this day there will be the Easter egg hunt for children. The hunt starts at 2 pm.

Farms without men: women’s everyday life in World War I
How did women in rural Tyrol experience the period of World War I?
In this special exhibition 2015, photographs, letters, personal mementos, interviews, etc. provide insights in what it meant for women on farms to cope with work and daily life only with the help of children, adolescents, elderly people, whilst the men were at war.
