The Mili Weber Museum The small house on the edge of the forest with a wide view of the lake and mountains was built by Mili Weber's brother Emil in 1917 as a log building on a stone base. On the upper floor, the massive walls with funnel windows and bay windows typical of the Engadin are interlocked with the chalet type. The building inventory of the municipality of St. Moritz identifies the building as worthy of protection and also attributes a high situational value to it in conjunction with the neighboring rustic small buildings on Via Dimlej 37 and 39, also designed by Emil Weber.

The Foundation The "Mili Weber Foundation St. Moritz" was founded by the artist herself in 1974. The Mili Weber Foundation owns the artist's house with original furniture and the associated hay barn, manger and garden, the artist's extensive estate, consisting of drawings, watercolors, oil paintings, manuscripts, song compositions and dollhouse, as well as the flower paintings and handcrafted objects of her half-sister Anna Haller and numerous sketchbooks, plans and small objects of her brothers Emil and Otto Weber.

With Dr. phil. Leza Dosch, art and architecture historian.
