European Museum of the Year Award

In 2012 the MuseumPasseier was nominated for this prestigious prize, awarded by the European Museum Forum, for its “Heroes & Hofer” exhibition. The jury praised the interesting range of topics covered, from the Tyrolean Rebellion of 1809 and its leader Andreas Hofer to the heroes of the present day.

In the words of the jury: “The public quality of this museum is most evident in the preservation of the original historical place, but also in the very professional way it was designed, a pleasant surprise at the end of a narrow high alpine valley.”
