Foiana Museum of Farm Life

The two-storey Museum of Farm Life in Foiana enriches the area of Merano and surroundings.

The annex building to the manse has been renovated in 1977 and changed into a farmers' museum based on the idea of a tourist from Munich, Horst Gießner, Karl Frei, guardian of cultural heritage, and the priest P. Rudolf Lantschner O.T.

Traditional items and methods of working from former times as well as machines are exhibited in this museum. The exhibits date back to the 18th and 19th century and come from the area of Foiana or Merano and surroundings. Life of farmers has been illustrated with love and devotion.

Home shrines are equally picked out as theme than instruments and tools that were used to make hard work easier. The exhibits provide an insight into the hard life of farmers, which also included cheerful get-togethers and village festivals.
