The Passiria/Passeier Valley museum is found at the Sandhof farmstead at St. Leonard where local hero and Tyrolean freedom fighter Andreas Hofer, 1767/1810, was born. The museum is dedicated to Hofer and the farm house is listed with the National Society for the Protection of Historic Buildings. One section is devoted to the life of Hofer while others, including an open-air section, deal with customs and traditions of the area.
Other places of interest in the valley which collaborate with the museum include the Bunker Museum at Moso, Jaufenburg Castle, the Pfistrad farmhouse museum, the French Soldiers’ Cemetery museum and the Pfandler Farmstead at 1,350 mt. above sea level where Andreas Hofer was eventually captured by the French occupational troops.
Giovo/Jaufenburg Castle at St: Leonhard – the tower and ruins host an exhibition regarding the history of the fortress and that of its inhabitants with exceptionally beautiful Renaissance frescoes from 1538.
