The Museum St. Johann in Tirol is located at the end of the pedestrian zone just behind the parish church in two buildings that are connected under the street. In the 18th century the houses served as a peniteniary for priests, who lead a dissolute life.

As a sensual place of amazement, the St. Johann Museum offers exciting stories: the roaring cave bear „Grim“, the terrarium with the legendary green earthworms, the prehistoric finds, the world-famous „Toy-Symphony“ by Edmund Angerer, the rare scorpion from the Kaiser mountains, the legendary Mrs. „Emma in Europe“, the talented poodle „Schmecks“ or the „mountain tour“ in the museum with a view of a lifelike model of the mountain as if from the stratosphere … These are just a few of the many lasting impressions of a visit to the museum.
