Museum Passeier in S. Leonardo/St. Leonhard

The museum at the Sandhof farm in Val Passiria/Passeiertal Valley, the birthplace of Andreas Hofer, explains in a lively and entertaining way how the bearded innkeeper and cattle drover became a Tyrolean folk hero. The permanent exhibition Heroes & US suggests a not so wide arc between Superman, Nelson Mandela and other contemporary heroes. The link that unites such different figures is timeless and therefore poses the question: why do we need heroes?

In the outdoor area stands a Haufenhof, a typical farm of the Passeiertal Valley.

The exhibition Miër Psairer offers an insight into the culture and dialect of the Passeiertal Valley.
