The Bregenz Museum of Local Lore, located on Kornmarkt Square, is one of the most interesting in the city. The museum is housed in a neoclassical building.
Museum exhibits will tell about the unique cultural and historical development of these lands, from the Stone Age to our time.
The museum was founded in 1857, after which it became a center for the storage of archaeological, folklore, natural, ethnographic and historical items found in the city and beyond.

The exhibition displays unique materials, discovered during archaeological excavations – ceramics (Bronze Age), unique finds from the Roman period, and a harpoon (Stone Age).
