Hittisau Women's Museum

Frauenmuseum Hittisau

Hittisau Women's Museum is a museum devoted to women. It was founded in 2000 and is the only museum of its kind in the country.

The museum displays the cultural achievements of women – particularly from the local Bregenzerwald region – through exhibitions, cultural events, teaching activities for children, presentations and workshops.

The museum occupies the upper floor of the Fire Brigade House and Culture House (Feuerwehrhaus und Kulturhaus). This was built from 1998 to 2000 by the local authorities, and won a national architecture award (Österreichischer Bauherrenpreis) in 2000. The local fire brigade occupies the large basement, there is a seminar room on the ground floor, and a local brass band is also based here. The upper section is made of wood (local silver fir), and the building has a large glass frontage.
