Schützenmuseum Trogen - open on request (closed in winter)

The Schützenmuseum (Marksmen's Museum) is nestled on the top floor of the magnificent twin palatial homes of the Zellweger family, right on the Landsgemeinde town square. Here, historical weapons, trophies and insignia of the Ausserrhoden Marksmen's Association are lovingly housed and documented.

Sporting, military and police weapons form the bulk of the collection, which comprises over 2000 exhibits.  Among the objects of particular interest are a carbine made in Trogen and the examples of indoor rifles. The exhibition also includes numerous flags and banners, skilfully handmade by women. Moreover the museum serves as an archive for all the documents relating to the various divisions of the Ausserrhoden Marksmen's Association.
