Museum of Popular Culture

Egna features a special museum which takes you back to the bourgeois daily life of the 19th and 20th century

Since 1995 a small museum in one of the historical buildings under the Arcades of Egna (Neumarkt) has been telling about the popular culture of the last centuries. Everyday items and furniture in their original environment show the bourgeois daily life of the 19th and 20th century. Founder of the collection is Anna Grandi Müller, who wanted to give an insight into the everyday life of their parents, grandparents and great-grandparents: She has been collecting more than 3,000 exhibits since the Sixties from her own possession, from attics and flea markets.

The museum consists of four floors: The Setnikar general store welcomes you at the entrance, on the first floor there are the school corner, the playroom, a lounge and the office. In the middle of the staircase there's the bathroom and dressing room with a special touch of luxury, a bathtub. On the second and third floor, however, follow amongst others a kitchen, the sleeping room and the sewing and ironing room. Details, toys and documents spread over the rooms leave the impression as if the owners will be back soon. The Museum of Popular Culture in Egna is managed by the voluntary Museum's Association - a series of educational material for kids and young people make a visit an interesting journey back in time also for them.
