What is there to see at the Stadtmuseum?

The Stadtmuseum Innsbruck regularly presents exhibitions dealing with numerous facets of the city's history. Thanks to the affiliation of the City Archives and the City Museum, which form a joint department in Innsbruck, the exhibitions can draw on a large amount of sources and present the history of the city in an authentic way.

What is the current exhibition at the City Museum?

Pembaur - who?

For almost half a century - from his appointment as Innsbruck's music director in 1874 until his death - Josef Pembaur (1848-1923) played a formative role in the cultural life of his hometown of Innsbruck. Today, a street, a bridge, a dormitory and several other places in Innsbruck still commemorate him. Despite his great importance for Tyrolean musical life during his lifetime - as director of the Musikverein, as composer, musician, music educator, choir director and concert organizer - only a few people today know who Josef Pembaur actually was. That's why we keep asking the question in the exhibition, "Pembaur - who?" in an attempt to shed light on the many aspects of Pembaur's comprehensive oeuvre.
