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

The museum, housed in a building recently renovated by Austrian architect Peter Mayrhofer, presents a 2,000-piece collection of artifacts from African, Asian, and African-American cultures as well as of non-European art and photography.
The museum’s permanent exhibition has been renovated in 2013, to better contextualize the ethnographic pieces exposed.

The  Museum der Völker organizes temporary exhibitions, learning activities for adults and children, lectures, and concerts. At the museum, an “ethnoshop” and a café are available to the visitors.
