This museum of folk art was established in 1922 and gives an insight into the lives of our forefathers. The museum is well-known in particular for its collection of over 60 well-preserved scissor-cut silhouettes.

The art of paper cutting produces images that look like lace. They are carefully cut with scissors or cutters and are traditionally produced in one piece, in black and white. A paper cutting may also have different shades of color or formats, and sometimes it looks like a collage of colored papers.

There is lovely painted, wooden furniture, sculptures, statues, military paraphernalia, cow bells and skis from all from the XIV century. These objects are proudly displayed throughout fifteen individual rooms. The museum has also recreated rooms which depict the life of blacksmiths, alpine cheese-makers, country kitchens and a bread oven which dates back to 1665. The exceptional display of cutting art, otherwise known as, decoupage, boasts more than sixty works including those created by Hans Jakob Hauswirth (1809-1871) and Louis Saugy (1871-1953).

Audio-guides in French, German and English are available for a modest sum. The museum is located on the edge of the village and is closed on Mondays but open every other day from 14.00 to 17.00 hrs.
