The Heimatmuseum conveys a vivid image of the history, culture and tradition of the farming village that became a health resort town, sports destination and congress venue.
It is accommodated in the Grosses Jenatschhaus, an old patrician
house from the 16th century. The extensive collection includes furnished interiors that belonged to the farmers and patricians who used to live in the municipality of Davos, household effects, agricultural equipment and tools. The museum complex encompasses a gristmill, a bakehouse, a granary and a remise with a Flüela stagecoach and a snow roller.
In the exhibition rooms the various aspects of the Walser immigrants’ everyday life are depicted.
Some facets of Davos’ eventful history are highlighted in the permanent exhibition: Davos as leading town of the League of Ten Jurisdictions, George Jenatsch, Davos emigrants, Davos as a health resort town, Davos during the Nazi period, Davos as a congress and knowledge town.
Baking days are held regularly.
