Description

The Monastic Museum is available from the cloister. The silver tabernacle of Hans Peter Staffelbach and Hans Georg Ott is especially noteworthy within the rich collection of cultic paraphernalia and paraments of the 16th till 18th century.

Only a small part of the former treasure of the monastery is on display in the museum. During the time of the French occupation in 1798 and at the time of the cassation of the monastery by the canton in 1841 the major part of the monastic treasure was scattered to the four winds.

The cultural foundation of St. Martin succeeded in collecting the main exemplars of the monastic treasure and in making them available to the public by establishing the monastic museum.
