Vorarlberg Museum, Bregenz
The renowned Vorarlberg Museum in Bregenz (former Vorarlberg National Museum) has been showing art objects and records of the past for more than 150 years. Its main aim is to collect, preserve and research the country's rich cultural heritage by making it accessible to the public at large.
Until 2014 the museum was completely reconstructed and modernized in order to present Vorarlberg's records of the past in a highly modern setting. The Kulisse Pfarrhof Ski Museum in Damuels is one of the important Vorarlberg Museum partners and we are fairly proud of it.
The splendid museum gives a detailed insight into customs, traditions and everyday life in Vorarlberg, displaying interesting objects and facts for both locals and holiday-makers. Themed exhibition areas focus on the Province of Vorarlberg across the borders and in a transregional way.
A varied collection of original documents and records of the past and the present prove the deeply rooted history of the museum. Visitors are invited to explore it with all senses and as well in an intellectual way: people and objects interact with the region's rich cultural heritage in a very special manner.
Collections and theme exhibitions center on a wide range of topics like archaeology, history, art history and Vorarlberg's ethnology compared to other Alpine areas.
The Vorarlberg Museum was designed according to the ethnic guidelines of the ICOM Statute, article 2 (para 1): "A museum is a non-profit making, permanent institution in the service of society and of its development, and open to the public, which acquires, conserves, researches, communicates and exhibits, for purposes of study, education and enjoyment, material evidence of people and their environment."
