Montafon folklore museum

The Montafon folklore museum in Schruns is one of the oldest establishments of its kind in the entire Alpine region.

Heritage protection society

As early as 1906 an enterprising and far-seeing group of people began a collection of local items. Since 1978 this has been housed in the former mining judge's house on the Kirchplatz in Schruns, a building dating back to the late Middle Ages, with later additions. Whilst initially the main focus was on the natural sciences, the Heritage Protection Society, founded in 1912, began collecting traditional folklore objects of local interest from throughout the entire Montafon valley.
