Folklore Museum “Little Month Palace” - The palace that was built in one month

The Little Month Palace in Hellbrunn was built in 1615 as a hunting lodge for Archbishop Markus Sittikus (1612-1619) and according to legend, in just one month. It has been home to the Salzburg Folklore Museum since 1924. Many treasures of Salzburg’s folk culture are presented here on three floors. Among the particularly valuable exhibits are the rural stately furniture and the historical masks. Highlights of the show are the life-size traditional figures of the Schönperchten as well as a presentation of the most beautiful, typically Salzburg traditional costumes. During the summer months, there are regularly changing special exhibitions on current topics of the Salzburg way of life.

Opening hours: Like Hellbrunn Palace and the Trick Fountains, the Little Month Palace is open from spring to autumn.
