About South Tyrolean Folklore Museum
The Museum of Ethnograohy in Dietenheim - Teodone shows the peasant life over the past centuries.
Founded in 1976, the Museum of Ethnography is the oldest of the provincial museums of South Tyrol. It is located in the imposing Mair am Hof residence in the Puster (Pusteria) Valley. Taken note of by travel writers as early as the 19th cen., the manor is now home to an open-air museum which offers a view of social life in the past with the juxtaposition of houses of the nobility, self-reliant agriculturists, and smaller farmers, along with several examples of the technology of the period. The instructional itinerary portrays the cultural history of a simple people with emphasis on everyday work in the fields and on the farm.
