The focus in this museum is on the folk art and folk culture of the alpine farming communities of the Appenzellerland, famed for their painted furniture and crafts such as saddle-making and white cooperage.
Traditional cheese-making is cultivated in a mountain hut. Groups can make their own cheeses, too, although advance booking is required. Live demonstrations of the similarly important crafts of weaving and embroidery are also offered on certain days.
