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.

From falling caps to whetstone quivers – Treasures from the Campell Collection

-
The newly-presented display collections offer a journey of discovery into a rich material heritage: lavishly embroidered fabrics, precious jewellery, hand-crafted pipes and snuffboxes, rare clocks, ceramic tableware, richly carved day-to-day items and more. Pride of place goes to the museum’s most valuable possession: a traverso ute manufactured by reputed instrument maker Rippert in Paris around 1695.
