Located in Publications
From archives to houses of the present

Bregenzerwälder Tracht als lebendiges Brauchtum
Since the 17th century the Bregenzerwälder costume for women has not changed in its main aspects but has just adapted to the times. It is the oldest costume in the German speaking area, however it is still lively and cannot be imagined outside the social life. It is a lively element of the living customs of the region. The production is extremely time- and cost-intensive as in the past, the necessary skills are no longer readily available. In order to ensure its continuation, the possibility to continue to produce was ensured and included in the "Juppenwerkstatt" (costumes factory) of Riefensberg, together with a costume museum. The Juppenwerkstatt must be managed as a lively museum. In order to give new impulse and to bring young generations closer to their own traditions, an exhibition was set up on the costly gold and silver jewel works in the costume and a video shot about the production of the expensive Bregenzerwälder women's costume. The production of the costume with its elements is connected to the seasons and strongly linked to the works of the still living craftspeople. At the same time, the video makes it possible to represent the multiple uses around wearing the costume. Since the setting up of the Juppenwerkstatt, more than 200 "Juppen" have been renovated or newly made.

Satellite handsets for Scotland's first mountain museum
If two Scottish visitor centres have their way, tourists in the Highlands will soon be walking about with hand-held computers. That will help turn Schiehallion Mountain into a dedicated mountain museum, and Helmsdale will become a centre for Scottish gold-panning tours. The postcard-sized computers employ a technology that is similar to the GPS system to be found in modern cars, and they are programmed like traditional museum audio guides.

An Alpine Museum for Slovenia
In early August more than 1'000 mountaineers and mountain enthusiasts attended the opening of the Slovenian Alpine Museum (Slovenski planinski muzej - SPM) in Mojstrana/SI. The multitude of guests who attended underlines just how strong the demand is for such an institution in the Slovenian Alps. Slovenia owes its Alpine Museum first and foremost to Miro Eržen, who fought for the project for 25 years. The new Museum was officially inaugurated by the President of Slovenia Danilo Türk.
