At the former farmstead of the Tyrolean freedom-fighter Andreas Hofer (1767-1810) in the village of St. Leonhard in the Passeirer valley a museum, the MuseumPasseier, is being created.
A documentary film regarding the life and the achievements of Andreas Hofer and his allies respective to the Tyrolean insurrection of 1809 against the Napoleonic and Bavarian invaders as well as many original show-pieces are at the heart of the exhibition in the former stable of the outhouse of the farm. In the barn itself above there is a fine ethnographic collection of show-pieces documenting local costumes, furniture, art, popular arts & credences, healing practices, customs, agricultural life, transport, crafts & the life of various local personages. The open-air area offers a stroll through various rebuilt original buildings of the 16th to the 19th century, through a typically furnished Passeirer farmstead of late, a visit to the chapel of the Sacred Heart (1899) and the small church of the Sacred Sepulchre (1691).
