Monastery Museum St. Märgen
"Religious popular arts"
Memory is the bridge between now and yesterday. Being able to take the walk back from time to time is necessary and important to all of us.
Walking down the memory lane we're looking for each other and meet in a completely new way. Sometimes memory even opens the door to a more profound kind of intercommunication.
Memory means going back into the past. On this journey, everybody collects his own and unique souvenirs of life.
In the monastery museum you can visit a collection of these "souvenirs of life" called “Religiöse bäuerliche Kunst - Religious rural art” (pilgrims' souvenirs exvoto).
