Museums in Bolzano

Culture, nature, history and much more are offered by the museums.

If you are interested in historical events, this is the place for you: there are plenty of them in South Tyrol’s capital. Just as many as natural highlights and archaeological findings. Such as Ötzi, the legendary Iceman. This is why Bolzano features a rich number of museums which will introduce you to a fascinating world of its own. Once a year they all take part in the International Museums Day. Special events are organised on this day and you don’t have to pay any entrance fees. By the way: Did you know the Bolzano now boasts a new museum about mountains? It is called the Messner Mountain Museum, is found on Sigmundskron Castle and was instituted by the famous South Tyrolean extreme mountaineer Reinhold Messner.
