  • Certainly this visit we will remember the sense of peace and tranquility that you breathe in deeply in all rooms. A special mention to the point 10 battlements. Here you will find a unique surprise at the base of the rampart. Not to be missed.

  • The Museum is located in Bruneck Castle, wonderfully restored. The container is not secondary to content: building environments are many and have different shapes, sizes, finishes and always very fascinating. The Tower in particular is essentially a ladder to reach the top where you can enjoy spectacular views of the Valley. The Museum tells the people of the mountain with exhibits of various kinds (furniture, equipment, everyday objects and ritual, clothes and jewelry), accompanied by brief fact sheets that are geographically different human communities. The claim of the protagonism inventor of the Museum is sometimes excessive.

  • Here you have to be very interested in culture. The exhibits are probably all very nicely prepared. The rooms are beautifully designed, the castle itself beautifully, but you have to be already hilltribe fan, to be really excited. The museum wasn't interactive.

  • I thoroughly enjoyed my visit - you can easily spend several hours here. The castle itself is interesting, and it's nice to see both the very old original walls, and some well-fitting modern restorations / embellishments. It's a pretty walk up to it from the town centre. The exhibition in this museum (out of a total of 6 Messner mountain museums) is focussed on mountain people, so there are lots of artefacts showcasing the culture and way of life of such populations from all over the world. Genuinely new and educational to me. The castle also has a great little cafe / restaurant. The visit price of 9 Euros is well worth it, and if you are in the region for a while, the 35 Euro ticket for all museums, valid for a year, is brilliant value too.
  • If you like mountain cultures you must spend a couple if hours in this amazing museum located in a well restored castle.
  • Very interesting
  • Very good exposition, a bit boring near the end.
  • Love it
