WELCOME TO THE TIROLER LANDESMUSEUM FERDINANDEUM
Important and comprehensive collections in the fields of art history, archaeology, history, natural sciences , and music add to the international allure of the Ferdinandeum.
Founded in 1823—185 years ago—the Ferdinandeum was the third oldest ‘national museum’ in the Austro-Hungarian Empire, after those in Budapest and Graz. Its holdings make the Ferdinandeum one of the top national museums worldwide. Moreover, the collections of the Tiroler Landesmuseum Ferdinandeum belong to and reflect the identity of Tyrol. Ever since it was founded, the Tiroler Landesmuseum Ferdinandeum has been oriented by the cultural history of the county in a universal sense, yet always maintaining a European outlook. The facade of the museum was built in the style of Florentine Renaissance Revival architecture and is unique to Innsbruck.
The exhibition itinerary presents international as well as regional objects of art history and offers an exciting tour through the pre- and early history of Old Tyrol, stretching from prehistory to Ancient Rome, the Early Middle Ages, the Romanesque, the Gothic, and the Baroque period, as well as the 19th century until today. Special exhibitions, concerts, and educational events round off the scope of services at the Ferdinandeum. A special attraction of the Ferdinandeum is its exquisite collection of Dutch paintings—including works by Rembrandt and Brueghel—beautiful Biedermeier exhibits, Jakob Stainer instruments, and a remarkable Artuqid bowl, a masterpiece of medieval enamel art.
Parts of the historical collections are included in a permanent exhibition at the Zeughaus.
Opening times: Tu-Su 9-17
