The Arzthaus (Dr’s house) is the museums main location. The initiator for the museum was Ulrich Mittelberg, a veterinarian from Alberschwende. He collected everything that otherwise might have been lost for future generations or just fallen prey to dealers. With the support of two architects, the museum opened in July 1977 and was newly renovated in 2000.
The “Wäldar ka nüd jedar sin” exhibition – “not everyone can be a native of the Bregenzerwald” – deals with the question of whether Alberschwende belongs to the Bregenzerwald or not. It presents historical maps and allows visitors to find the answer … at least in a territorial sense.
