The Walserhaus museum has a rich collection linked to the ethnography of the village and the Walser. The exhibition presents furniture, household goods, tools for working wood, hemp, wool and linen, toys, devotional objects, traditional costumes typical of the ancient German-speaking settlement, as well as documents from the Walser history.
The museum's main building is an old double farm house, built in 1386, largely preserved in its original state. It is one of the oldest peasant houses in Switzerland.
