Museum Disentis/Mustér

Monastery Museum

The monastery museum is the purest treasury.


In the former chapter hall, we show you sacred works of art that are otherwise hidden in sacristies. The oldest altarpieces, robes and statues date back to around 1200.

A second room gives an overview of the history of Disentis Abbey. Witnesses include the early medieval stucco fragments, the first mitre of a Disentiser abbot or a foliant with Gregorian chorale melodies.

Other focal points of the exhibition

  • textiles with treasures from the 14th to the 19th century
  • folklore objects from the Christian customs from the Christmas nativity scene to the grave cross
  • flora and fauna (with prepared animals)
  • minerals
