The cot collection of the Tyrolean Folk Art Museum provides a unique insight into the diversity of cots as well as an overview of the history and development of the cot in Tyrol.

And this collection of nativity scenes continues to grow - above all thanks to generous gifts. In the recent past, the Folk Art Museum was once again able to add some remarkable objects to its collection in this way. Three special nativity scenes that have only recently found their way into the Folk Art Museum's collection will now be presented to museum visitors for the first time up to and including 2 February 2024.

The figures in the Haider nativity scene were carved and moulded from avalanche wood by Norbert Haider (1930-2021) from Oberperfuß. After Norbert Haider's death, the cot was given to the Tyrolean Folk Art Museum.

The cot was probably created in the first half of the 19th century in Castelrotto in South Tyrol and was donated to the museum in the summer of 2023. In addition to the Adoration of the Shepherds and the Magi, it also depicts other scenes from the Christmas story.

The Lederer nativity scene was created by Jakob Lederer (1909 - 1979) from Alpbach. The heirs of a private collection of Lederer's works in Vienna recently decided to donate the majority of the collection to the Tyrolean Folk Art Museum, which already had other works by Lederer in its holdings.

Admission to the cot exhibition:
