Discovering the museum landscape of South Tyrol

South Tyrol is a land of great historical consciousness. Numerous museums invite you to embark on an exciting journey through its varied and rich history. It goes back to the Stone Age at the Archeoparc Senales, near the site where the Ötzi Ice Man was found, now on display at the Bolzano Archaeological Museum. It continues through the Napoleonic era with the rebellion of the peasants in the Passiria Museum. Another gem is the church of San Procolo, where the oldest frescoes of the entire German area are located, and then the historical-cultural museum at Castel Tirolo. In addition, there is the Castle of Merano and the Castle of Scena, the agricultural museum of Castel Fontana, the Touriseum at the Gardens of Castel Trauttmansdorff and of course the attraction of the South Tyrolean museum landscape: the five Messner Mountain Museums, distributed in several locations across the region. There are also specialized facilities such as Mondotreno in Rablà, with the largest miniature railway in Italy, or the Women's Museum in Merano, showing a new prospective on places and people.
