The well-known citizen of Bruneck/Brunico Johann Tinkhauser (1787-1844) was goldsmith, engraver, stamp and lightning rod producer, mayor and chronicler. As a passionate collector, he created a vast private collection with many treasures, curiosities and rarities. The exhibition illuminates this for Bruneck/Brunico and its time remarkable character, his versatile interests and gives an idea of the former original Tinkhauser-Collection.
