Along with collecting, keeping and displaying/communicating, researching is one of the traditional core tasks of a museum.
Researching also includes documentation and scientific investigation. The South Tyrolean Museum of Hunting and Fishing was opened in 1996 as a branch of the South Tyrolean Folklore Museum in Dietenheim.
Part of the collection of the Folklore Museum as well as that of the Museum Hunting and Fishing can now be seen online: the online catalogue is constantly being expanded.
Some of the current research projects are also being run jointly with other museums.
