  • Aside from the Mummy there is little. Very minimal, stark and rather trivial. Luckily the cost is not excessive: rightly under ten euros, but the entrance is worth even a few euros less

  • ... but with wide range ... often program "calibrated" to families with children.--kid-friendly conferences are organized ... lately volcanoes and earthquakes were the focus of much popular conferences

  • the Museum is located between the city centre and the beautiful park of Bolzano. Famous because it hosts "the Iceman". The mummy of Similaun glacier was found on 19.9.1991 Ötztal Alps on the border between Italy and Austria. Dates back to the copper age. In the beginning it was contended between Italy and Austria.
