It includes the unique Treasure of Loreto with its precious single pieces of art from all over Europe. The Klausner Art Colony (1874-1914) is another key aspect of our permanent exhibition.

Chiusa/Klausen rose to become the “city of artists” in the late ’70s of the 19th century due to an incisive event in literature and history.
The Treasure of Loreto is the most significant part of the museum whose entire first floor is dedicated permanently to this unique collection of artwork.
The Museum of Chiusa/Klausen celebrated a special jubilee in 2012: its 20th year since reopening and the 100th special exhibition at the museum gallery.
The Capuchin monastery, the church, the Loreto chapel and the famous treasure were endowed by Queen Maria Anna from Spain.
