The museum of local history in Kirchdorf in Tirol!
The so-called Metzgerhaus is a farmhouse dating from the 17th century. The ground floor is in original condition. The 1st storey was burnt down during the village fire in 1809, but was rebulit in the same year (year inscription in the roof ridge). Metzgerhaus is a museum of local history and the community archive for Kirchdorf in Tirol, however it is also used as a cultural venue.
From 1678 to 1825 the "Metzger franchise" (Metzger privilege) was on the building, hence the name "Metzgerhaus". The museum is an Unterinntal farm, with a house attached to the gable end, with the traditional functions for living found in the hallway, the stable and the remainder in the adjoining rear section. What you see is a typical agricultural building from the early 20th century, a genuine Unterinntal farmhouse snug with circular wooden bench, chicken coops, tiled stove and small wall cabinets. One special feature are the lintel boards. A section of the former stable on the ground floor has been adapted for the exhibition. In two cabinets there are also various work attire and celebratory costumes on display.
