Dr. Hans Klocker was a keen mountaineer and amateur geologist, and his bequest includes a valuable collection of 731 minerals and 18 fossils from Tyrol, South Tyrol, the rest of the Alpine region, and North and South America. This knowledgeable and systematic collection, including his own finds and purchases from dealers and other collections, has been given to the natural history collection of the Tyrolean State Museums, where it is being conserved, categorised and inventoried by their team, as a part of the Klocker Foundation. Highlights of the collection are displayed at Villa Klocker in Arzl in Innsbruck.
