The cultural archive collects documents on the culture of the Upper Engadine and the surrounding regions, thereby saving endangered cultural assets.

The Upper Engadine Cultural Archives is a public institution that collects documents on the culture of the Engadine population and makes them available to interested parties. The institution aims to professionally promote and deepen cultural knowledge of the Engadine and neighbouring regions, especially in the fields of art, architecture, archaeology, history, photography, film, literature, language, music and natural history.

The current collection of the Upper Engadine Cultural Archives comprises over 670 holdings and 200,000 archival items: photographs, negative plates, manuscripts, architectural plans, framed original pictures, herbaria, newspapers, books, objects, etc.. These are distributed in 12 rooms (300m2) and are partly accessible via online archive.

The current exhibition is THE CLOCK, with clocks and documents from the Upper Engadine Cultural Archive (open Thursday 2-7 p.m.).
