Gleichzeitig mit der Hofkirche 1553-63 nach Plänen Andrea Crivellis von Nikolaus Turing d.J. (gest 1558) und Marco della Bolia erbaut und als Stifts-Gebäude für regulierte Chorherren gedacht, diente dieser ursprüngliche Renaissancebau mit seinem gut erhaltenen Kreuzgang von 1562 bis 1784/85 als Franziskanerkloster, hieraufe vorwiegend als Schule. Seit 1929 beherbergte er das Tiroler Volkskunstmuseum. Der Nord- und der vordere Teil des Osttraktes wurden 1719 von Georg Anton Gumpp umgebaut und barockisiert.

German-English translation:

As the Court Church was being constructed (1553-63) according to plans of Nicholas Andrea Crivelli Turing the Younger (died 1558), and Marco della Bolia, this building was designed and built as a seminary for choral singers. From 1562 to 1784-85 it served as a Franciscan seminary, as attested to by its well-preserved Renaissance-style cloisters. After 1785 it was mainly as a school. Since 1929, it has been the home of the Tyrolean Folk Art Museum. The northern- and forwards part of the east wing was rebuilt in the Baroque style in 1719 by Georg Anton Gumpp.
 
Erected by Stadt Innsbruck (City of Innsbruck).
