im Ballhaus

Museum of Local History Imst

A wealth of ‘findings’, from artworks to everyday objects, accompany you along the path from prehistoric times to the present day. The artefacts recount the history of mining, the guild system and the

former life of the famous Imst bird traders. Special events as the outstanding exhibition of historical nativity scenes take place on a regular basis.

[Translate to English:] Ballhaus Imst

The Imster Ballhaus is one of the oldest buildings in the town of Imst, in the Tyrolean Oberland. This building was first mentioned in a document as early as 1530. 

Today the museum is a place that allows us to relive the region, from prehistory up to the present day. One of the museum's greatest treasures is the magnificent baroque Ursulinen nativity scene with 239 figurines in precious robes, which can be seen at Christmas time along with many other artistically crafted nativity scenes.
