History of the building
The Richard Wagner Museum in Tribschen is situated on the premises of the former country home of the Am Rhyn family. The patrician family had acquired the manor in the 18th century.

The origins of the property, which is under historical monument protection, can be traced back to the 15th century. Evidence of this fact is provided by the basement, which dates from that period. In all likelihood, the house was inhabited by the "Herren zu Tripschen" (the men from Tripschen) in the late Middle Ages. This area of Lucerne still bears their name today.

The manor's present-day external appearance can be attributed to the year 1800. The rows of windows are typical of buildings dating from this time period. Their axial symmetry can be traced to the building style of the masters from the Singer family.
