Valley & people
The open-air exhibition is an ideal place to spend some time. Here can be found a farmstead that is typical of the old Passeier Valley. Alongside the farmhouse and barn there are numerous other structures: a mill, smithy, baking oven, grain store, a place for loden manufacture and a beehive. They were all threatened with demolition and have now been faithfully reconstructed on the open-air site.
Farmsteads were a product of the self-sufficiency of earlier generations, from an era that is not in fact so distant from our own. The permanent exhibition Mier Psairer, opened in 2015, shows the numerous ethnological objects in a new light and relates them to the character traits of the Psairer.
Miër Psairer is an interactive exhibition about us, the people of Passeier. We offer visitors a light-hearted crash course in Psairer dialect, as well as some indiscreet insights into how we live – folklore seen from a different angle.
Why do we collect what we collect? Who decides what is junk and what is a museum object?
The show depot in the midst of all the ethnological objects will surprise visitors with a few questions that museums do not usually ask.
