The Bramberg Museum
Museum in Bramberg am Wildkogel in Hohe Tauern National Park Holiday Region
Bramberg Museum has been housed at the Wilhelmgut, one of the oldest buildings in Bramberg, since 1979. Its collection, which is focused on local history and folk culture, has steadily expanded since its beginnings at the end of the 1950s.
To make it easier for you to find your way around the museum, they have created a color-coded navigation system which will lead you to each of the different collections. In the lower section of the house, an impressive National Park exhibit provides an excellent impression of the mineral wealth of the Hohe Tauern mountains. A unique opportunity to marvel at the sparkling emeralds for which Habachtal is so famous around the world. Remodeling work and expansion in 2010 gave the mineral department at Bramberg Museum a whole new, and more modern look.
The upper portion of the house is dedicated to regional and local cultural history. Here, you learn more about the history of the Wilhelmgut itself, about life in former times in the "Emerald Village" of Bramberg am Wildkogel, religious art of the common people as well as the diverse flora & fauna of the region. And on the top floor, you will discover an additional highlight of Bramberg Museum: an exhibition focused on beekeeping, past and present, including a living beehive.
That said, the outdoor area of Bramberg Museum, with a total of 11 original buildings and a mining section, is also well worth exploring.
