Accessibility at the Museum

The Folklore Museum is an open-air museum whose buildings are protected monuments. Access to some areas is unfortunately not possible or only with difficulty for those who have difficulty walking or who are wheelchair users.

We strive to make museum visits as pleasant as possible for people with disabilities. Our staff will be pleased to offer assistance and information at all times.


Mair am Hof residence

The display areas on the ground floor are accessible to wheelchair users and those who have difficulty walking. Unfortunately, there is no lift to the upper floors of this 300-year old protected building.

Please contact our staff for information and assistance.


Open-air site

The open area is accessible to wheelchairs, but the sloping terrain and the surface make movement considerably more difficult. Contact our staff if you need assistance. The door thresholds and narrow passageways mean that only some of the old original buildings are wheelchair-accessible, while the upper floors cannot be accessed by wheelchair.
