  • The Museum is a must for the exhibition of the so-called ice man (Otzi) is very interesting, not only by the fact that we can see a find which changed even the period of an era, but also by the fact of knowing in detail the customs, clothing, utensils, weapons of the time. Is very worthwhile and is good to buy a ticket over the internet. Makes it easy enough to input.

  • Ötzi is to see in this beautiful museum in his ice room where he preserved. Instructive are the many interactive objects that allows you to, among other things, all radiographs can see of him. There is on the 2nd floor to see a changing exhibition. Small museum shop, no café but vending machines for water etc. Free lockers.
