Armoury Museum (Museum in the Zeughaus)

Experience Tyrolean cultural history

In the former arsenal of the Emperor Maximilian I, the Armoury presents the cultural history from prehistoric finds to mining. 
 

First street wall map of Europe (1520)

A rare feature can be discovered in the Armoury Museum. The first street wall map of Europe gives an overview of the network from 1520. The German cartographer Martin Waldseemüller designed it in the Renaissance period. He was also the person who drew the first map of the world. 

 

Globes by Peter Anich

In addition to Waldseemüller the work of another local cartographer is presented as well. Peter Anich (1723 - 1766), from Oberperfuss, received great recognition for his large globes. Some examples can be seen in the museum in the armoury. 

 

Special exhibitions

Throughout the year there are various special exhibitions on Tyrolean cultural history and many other topics. A visit to the museum in the Zeughaus as part of the SKI plus CITY Pass Stubai Innsbruck promises a lot of interesting facts in a stimulat-ing presentation. 

Experience Tyrolean cultural history

This famous sight in Innsbruck was built by Emperor Maximilian I to store the black powder outside the city, and today contains a museum on mining, religion, the Napoleonic era, the two world wars, and emerging tourism in the 19th century. 


The Tyrolean freedom fight of 1809 as well as the two world wars are presented. In addition to a journey through the ages of Tyrolean history, there is also a lot to discover about geology and mineralogy in Tyrol. Special guided tours, a children's workshop, family and guided tours for children and groups make it particularly easy to experience Tyrol's cultural history in an exciting and varied way.
