  • Had long wanted to visit this place. We took the opportunity during a ski trip. Entrance ticket very cheap. The Family Pack costs only 18 €. The Museum is spread over 3 floors but the last one is dedicated to thematic exhibitions. The visit takes about 1 hour. There is a lot to read but it is also interactive. Some areas are dedicated to sensory experiences and small workshops for children. Difficult to find parking nearby but Bolzano offers many underground car parks with height but reduced. About 2.10 meters. If you are in the area not to be missed!
