Museum Convent of St. John, Müstair

Twelve hundred-years of convent, architectural and art history

Convent Museum

The convent’s museum is located in the Planta Tower, an over one-thousand-year-old fortified residential tower. The sound of the liturgical bell invites you to follow your guide on a journey through 1200 years of convent and architectural history. The Benedictine nuns of Müstair allow visitors a glimpse inside the convent and their daily life in former times and nowadays.

Museum visit

Starting in the cloister, your museum visit takes you into the vast cellar of the Planta Tower and then continues to the three floors of the tower. As you go through the building you will be able to experience a „convent within the convent“. Along the way you will see reception and living areas, sleeping quarters and prayer areas, as well as the beautiful little Hohenbalken room that dates from the Baroque period. Find out about archeological discoveries and admire some of the convent’s art history treasures and jewels.
