Museum of castle Mylau
The collections of the cultural history museum in the Castle of Mylau are among the oldest museum collections in the Saxony-Vogtland region.
The roots were set by the Mylau nature study association, which moved with its museum into the castle in 1893. This was followed by a targeted collecting and exhibiting on the areas of nature studies, mineralogy and ethnology. Later, the interest in collecting extended to cultural historic and folkloristic objects.
In 1956 it was united with the Museum of Reichenbach to a district museum and in 1990 the castle was assigned to the town of Mylau along with the inventory. Since August 2010, the castle and the museum are administered by the authority of the association Futurum Vogtland e. V.
