  • Great staging very hyper, designed almost exclusively to measure and according to the Iceman, the critically acclaimed "Ötzi". Rational and very interesting exhibition, although undeveloped land the geomorphological and anthropological.

  • One museum exhibit. Pretty boring. Well, that entry was free on BozenCard, issued by the hotel. A fee would be even duller. It is possible to visit "for show".

  • The man who walked around 5300 years ago here is reconstructed and protagonist of an interesting exhibition.
