The Museum im Zeughaus presents itself as a house of Tyrolean cultural history. In chronological order, visitors are taken on a journey through the history of the region, which starts with prehistoric finds and then leads through illustratively presented chapters such as silver mining, salt extraction, the Tyrolean rebellion of 1809, tourism and the two World Wars: The former weapons depot of Emperor Maximilian I today houses a permanent exhibition on the cultural history of Tyrol. In the historic ambience of the over 500 year old building, important sections of the museum address archaeology, silver mining, salt extraction, tourism and the World Wars. By the way, the German word “Zeug” is now used in the sense of “stuff”, but used to mean “equipment”, or “utensils”.
