The Museum

The Gerstlhaus Museum in Schenkenfelden, Upper Austria, shows an antiquarian store from the early 19th century including all typical requisites and sales items. The museum illustrates how modest needs once could be met by a single grocery store providing food, household goods, tools and agricultural machines completed by an original post office dating back to the former Austrian-Hungarian empire as well as a tobacconist’s store from 1869.

The following video illustrates how people practiced shopping at Laura Gerstl’s store 50 years ago (in German):
