The Merano Municipal Museum, also known as Palais Mamming Museum, is one of the oldest museums of South Tyrol, as well as the Bolzano Municipal Museum.
The Palais Mamming Museum, which presents the collections of the Municipal Museum, was re-opened in 2015 in the newly restored and extended baroque palace of the same name on the Parish Square of Merano. With the new extension, the palace combines modern and historical architecture in a very special way.
The Municipal Museum was already founded in 1900 and is therefore one of the oldest museums of South Tyrol. Franz Innerhofer, a doctor from Merano, laid the foundation stone for it with his collections. The collection contains 100,000 objects and 20,000 photographs. It gives an overview of the historical development of the town, prehistory and early history, explains all areas of life of the people of Merano and ends with modern, contemporary art.
Some very special unique pieces make up the special charm of this important collection, including an Egyptian mummy, the Sudanese weapons collection of the adventurer Slatin Pascha, a typewriter by Peter Mitterhofer, the inventor of the typewriter, and a death mask of Napoleon.
