Museums & exhibitions in the mountain village Goms – Take a look back

I conserve the past. I glance back at our ancestors. I turn back time to help me understand the present. I offer hands-on history. I offer nature experience. My art is amazing. Please enter. I am your museum.

The quaint Goms museums have a lot of exciting stories to tell. They invite you to explore the precious cultural heritage of the high valley in a genuine way.

The carefully selected and often privately owned collections host marvellous artefacts of past rural life: Precious crystals and minerals from the local mountains, the variety of local nature, sacred treasures and objects of bygone everyday life…

All museum can be visited daily on request. The museums in Oberwald offer visits joined with guided village tours.
