The building, designed by the renowned architect Nicolaus Hartmann (1880-1956), is based on a traditional Engadine house and was conceived for original interiors and furnishings from five centuries and realized in 1906. The renovation in 2016 allowed the installation of additional display collections and a permanent exhibition on the Rhaeto-Romanic language.
"From the trap bonnet to the whetstone quiver - Precious objects from the Campell Collection"
The newly created display collections in the Engadine Museum allow a voyage of discovery into the wealth of material cultural heritage: richly embroidered textiles, precious jewellery, highly crafted pipes and tobacco boxes, rare wall clocks, ceramic tableware, everyday objects decorated with carvings and much more. The museum's most precious object is also on display: a transverse flute made by the famous instrument maker Rippert in Paris around 1695. The centrepiece of the exhibition, however, is the aesthetically high-quality presentation of table and bed linen as well as clothing and accessories from Engadine families.
