Folk Life Museum

in detail

Founded in 1913 under Viktor von Geramb as a department of the Universalmuseum Joanneum, the Folk Life Museum has a unique collection dating mainly from pre-industrial times. Over 40,000 objects document the material and intellectual folk culture of Styria. The museum is housed in the early 17th century, former Capuchin monastery in Graz’s Paulustorgasse, at the foot of the Schlossberg. It also comprises a more recent structure from the 1930s with exhibition rooms designed at that time, the Folk Costumes Room and the Implements Hall.
