THE MUSEUM’S EXTENSION

Esteem, reverence, respect, sensitivity, transcendence

These and other receivables presented successively , as the teams around planner Ing. Hansjörg Krißmer , curator Iris Rataitz – Kiechl , mine club chairman Andy Tangl and Univ.-Prof. Dr. Harald Stadler thus began to flesh out the Museum of the healer.

There ensued a stimulating – sometimes even exciting – discourse, which culminated in the active implementation on several levels and so created this unique museum.

Waiting area

The space in front of the museum offers waiting exhibition visitors the opportunity to tune into topics that will be addressed in the museum.

“Outside world”

The spacious entrance hall of the museum invites visitors with to tune into the world of the 17th century. This is done using historical securitized fate of individuals who are remembered because of hate speeches, slander ,persecution, and the like. A faithfully reconstructed hearth invites to reflect, experience and try.

“Inner world ”

The main room of the exhibition , the so-called ” inner world ” finally deals with the person of the healer, as well as all previous archaeological finds and historical scientific knowledge on this subject. Furthermore, local socio-political realities are illuminated to give the visitor a comprehensive picture of the historical Tyrol during this era. A twenty minute docudrama about the possible fate of the healer completes this often very moving , sometimes disturbing , but definitely always worth visiting tour of the museum .
