Museum der Völker | Schwaz
The Museum der Völker (Museum of People) in Schwaz, Austrian Tyrol, is an ethnographic museum, based of the personal collection of the photographer and journalist Gert Chesi.

The museum permanent exhibition has been renovated in 2013, to better contextualize the ethnographic pieces exposed.
