Mair am Hof residence

The heart of the museum is formed by the baroque Mair am Hof residence, built between 1690 and 1700 by the Sternbach family. This grand estate recounts how the landed gentry lived and resided and is home to extensive ethnological collections of items relating to popular piety and folk art. Alongside the residence’s chapel, maintained in its original condition and with a permanent exhibition on popular religion, visitors can view the servants’ quarters, a collection of pipes, belts, traditional costumes and zithers, see old kitchen implements and, in the cellar, find out about the inventory management of a large farm.
