Museums in South Tyrol

History, tradition, art and nature – South Tyrol has numerous museums and collections that are varied just as much as the South Tyrolean landscape.

In addition to the Museum of Archaeology in Bozen and the spectacular museums by extreme alpinist Reinhold Messner, there are many original, modern, partially private museums. Be it in the cities, villages or on top of Mt. Kronplatz – everywhere in South Tyrol, visitors can find different types of interesting museums. Many of them deal with South Tyrolean history and lifestyle, other are dedicated to art, nature or curious collections.

Families will feel like in paradise in the museums too as most of them have special programmes or guided tours for kids. In many museums in South Tyrol, knowledge is transferred practically. In the Archeoparc in Schnals, you can experience life in the Neolithic period first hand. During the action days in the Folklore Museum in Bruneck, visitors learn how to bake bread, do the laundry or clip sheep in a traditional manner.

In the Wine Museum in Kaltern, the visitors’ sight, hearing, scent and taste are addressed. The guided tours can be booked together with a wine tasting. In autumn, you can pick ancient sorts of wines and taste them afterwards.

Immerse yourself into the special world of the museums in South Tyrol and get inspired by their variety!
