Inaugurated in 1976, the Walser museum in Alagna is a perfectly preserved hut dating back to 1628, an unaltered example of what the Walser house was and how it was used over the centuries.

The Walser built dwellings that housed under the same roof stables, spaces for rest, social life and food storage, in a harmonious synthesis of the fundamental needs of these high-altitude farmers. The museum shows how the ancient Walser knew how to create an efficient system inside the house, which was well suited to their need for self-sufficiency, and tells the story of daily life through the tools in common use, with a careful journey through the material culture of the ancient inhabitants of Alagna.
