Our ancestors appear – the inhabitants of the dominion Schellenberg and the earldom Vaduz will be presented in a special exhibition at the Liechtenstein National Museum.
A museum succeeds in bringing history to life and to communicate contents that past things feel very close. Our Landesmuseum is acknowledging the jubilee „300 years Principality of Liechtenstein“ with a special exhibition.
In this exhibition, a time picture of 1712 to 1772 is developed that offers the visitors not only the historic act of the making of the Principality of Liechtenstein but also perspectives into the everyday life and other aspects of this time.
The exhibition shall start with the death of Prince Johann Adam Andreas I. von und zu Liechtenstein, the buyer of Schellenberg (1699) and Vaduz (1712) who died shortly after the contract of purchase for the earldom Vaduz was signed.
Other hurdles that had to be taken before the dominion Schellenberg and the earldom Vaduz could be raised to an Imperial Principality will also be explained.
Duration of the exhibition:
February 27, 2019 - January 23, 2020
