Museum Engiadinais / Engadiner Museum

The museum whose exterior looks like a 300-hundred years old Engadine style house is only one hundred years old. It was Riet Campell (1866 - 1951) who founded this museum and entrusted the architect Nikolaus Hartmann (1880 - 1956) with the construction of a house for his collection. It should reflect the typical Engadine style. The museum shelters an important collection of furnishings and objects of the culture of habitation of the Engadine.

Current exhibitions

Vom Kleiekotzer zum Eichhörnchenkäfig. Tierisches aus der Sammlung Campell

-
Darstellungen von Tieren finden sich häufig in Wappen. Sie stehen meist symbolisch für positive Eigenschaften wie Stärke oder Tapferkeit. Erste Wappen entstanden zur Zeit der Kreuzzüge und waren auf dem Schild der Ritter abgebildet. Etliche der Bündner Familienwappen wurden in Zusammenhang mit Adelsverleihungen durch europäische Fürsten- oder Königshäuser vergeben. Neben den Möbeln präsentiert das Museum interessante Gegenstände, die mit Tieren zu tun haben — vom Hirschkopf bis zur Bärenfalle.

Hartmann. Architecture of a Family

-
For three generations, master builders and architects Nicolaus Hartmann shaped and colored the landscape and the building culture of the Grisons. The Hartmann's works are still well present today, especially in the Engadine, bearing testimony to an era of upheaval and cultural change. The then-blossoming tourism sector demanded a well-functioning infrastructure, which translated into such architectural products as fine hotels, hydro power stations and the structures of the Rhaetian Railway.
