The Museum Appenzell gives a good overview of what it was like to live in Appenzell in the past.
Housed in two traditional old-town buildings, the museum has many artefacts on display, including a full copper-makers bench and tools. A good bit of archaeological information is also given about the great fire of 1560, which basically levelled the town.
If you like to spend time in museums, plan 1-1.5 hours for your visit. I needed to catch a train connection and felt rushed with only 45 minutes. Note also that the museum (as basically everything else in Appenzell besides restaurants) is closed over lunch, so plan your trip accordingly.
