Museums of the Appenzellerland

Welcome to the information portal of the seventeen Museums of the Appenzellerland. Here you will also find up-to-date information about the museums' exhibitions and special events. Come and take a look around!

The Appenzell region boasts a diverse array of museums. Mostly small, with the focus on cultural history, their architecture blends harmoniously with their environment.

With their many and varied collections, they embody the region's cultural heritage and, through their exhibitions, serve as an important platform for social dialogue and development.
