    The choice of setting up this museum couldn't be more apt. Beautiful castle which most likely would have gone broke or not appreciated as you can see now. The exhibition runs on virtually any surface with stairs and environments set up inside of corner towers. On this I could only criticism having visited in August entando on these structures seemed to get in a greenhouse having no air intake enough to transfer the heat that accumulates during the day, so that it cannot fully enjoy the exposed design. The rest exposed in environments suited to temperatures or outdoors are very nice and comprehensive information on the cultures and traditions of the geographic area to which it refers. The Green is well groomed and neat and a touch of beauty, although not necessary, to the entire complex.

    The Museum is housed in a historic castle in the history of South Tyrol restored by Reinhold Messner to host the sum of all series of its museums. It ranges from the genesis of the mountains, religion therewith, history and equipment of alpinism, all very well set in the structures of the Castle. Worth the effort to visit it.

  • Should you look at times anyway when you're nearby. The Juval Castle alone is beautiful and offers magnificent views of the surrounding countryside. The Museum is extremely large and spacious yet there are on every corner to discover something or to explore. You should watch that man will not be between a school class that as a.

  • great exhibition venue, capable of tuning. the location is sensational, wonderful medieval architecture meets modern steel construction. aware the tour reminds options of the verirrens to the top or at the bottom of the situation in the mountain. the airy design of stairs and bridges can be the pulse of mountain increase quickly rise. some stations are great made, for example the place of remembrance for accident mountain climber. the dominant is unclear to me reference remained on Asian religion. stations with details overloaded the individual I was not perfect. in this respect: necessarily worth seeing, but also potential upwards.

  • If you are erhoft a trip into the old South Tyrolean history and would like to see how people lived before you is wrong here... Rather, it is a big artist - exhibition mixed with Tibetan exhibits, and some bersteigergeschichte... Not suitable for families! For those of you that are not my opinion, That's my opinion! 😜
