Apart from the museum items and the interesting temporary exhibitions, the house demonstrates with its facade paintings and the decorated rafters, how people lived in former days.
The former living culture may also be recognized in the hearty farmers' kitchen. The cosy room may be rented for meetings and private events. A rich collection of exhibits is presented in the attic.
The name of the local museum of Gossau is reminiscent of the former textile company "IDEWE", that had been first established in Unterottikon and had its headquarters in Wetzikon. We have written evidence of this prominent vertical timbering building from 1592. Influential families have lived in it ever since. Around 1780, it has been partially redesigned into a tudor-style house with a dormer.
Guided tours for groups according to arrangement.
Slide show and video presentations about "ancient Gossau".
