Museums in the Murau-Kreischberg region

A museum is a professional facility that is permanently open to the public; its aim is to conserve and safeguard objects that bear testament to a particular theme. It goes without saying that this is also true of the museums of the Murau-Kreischberg region. A variety of facilities offer experience, history and fascinating facts on a plethora of subjects of regional importance.


The museum as an all-weather option

The big advantage of a museum, of course, is that you can visit it whatever the weather. That doesn't mean that museums are merely a way to pass the time when the weather is bad ‒ they provide a great deal of interesting information about the history of Murau and the region. The Brewery of the Senses and the Wood Museum cater to the requirements of visitors with special needs, making them a mostly accessible experience. Museums always make for an exciting joint excursion for the whole family!
