Overview

The Museum of Engadine Culture was built in 1906, on the initiative of Riet Campell, a passionate collector. It looks at first glance like an age-old Engadine house. The outside has all the typical features: the sgraffito-style door and window frames, the Romansh inscriptions, and the traditional oriel window. In fact, the house is little more than a hundred years old and was constructed as museum by the famous architect Nicolaus Hartmann Junior of St. Moritz. The panelled living rooms, or stüvas as they are known locally, have come from farmhouses and village houses in the Engadine and surrounding valleys. They give you a wonderful insight into the lifestyles of affluent local families over the last five centuries.

Really cool museum showing what its like living in the beautiful lands of snow. It was a bit of work to get there, but worth it in the end.

This was an alternative to a mountain railway ride due to very wet weather! However we so enjoyed the experience, learning about Engadine life in days gone by. Quite a small museum but definitely worth a visit - staff very helpful too.

Loved this! They have taken rooms from very old chalets and put them in the museum intact- amazing and well worth the stroll down the hill

If you'd like to know what the inside of those gorgeous Engadine homes looked like in past centuries, a visit to the Engadine Museum is very worthwhile. Here, quite a number of rooms are filled with authentic furniture and furnishings, intricate woodwork on wall, doors...More

If you are visiting St. Moritz and it's raining that's the right place to go. You will find interesting thinks about the ancient alp inhabitants, and the living in Engadin
