The Schanfigg-Arosa Local History Museum presents a vivid picture of history, customs, former everyday life and crafts from Arosa and the Schanfigg. The rich collection of objects, documents and photographs is stored and exhibited in the historic Eggahuus. 
Exhibits in the local history museum originate from the cultural history of the valley Schanfigg and the Wals people living there since the 13th century. The museum represents a summary of the farmer's past of the valley and the tourism industry that started 120 years ago.
