Messner Mountain Museum: six exhibitions in South Tyrol and Belluno

Six tales to discover mountaineering

Each Messner Mountain Museum is a tale about extreme mountaineer Reinhold Messner and the experiences he collected during his long career. These six museums (five in South Tyrol and one in Belluno) are among the most famous sights in South Tyrol and a must-see if you are a mountaineering fan spending a holiday in South Tyrol. All the Messner Mountain Museums – each revolving around a specific mountain-related theme – are located in unique, panoramic settings, which make them even more fascinating.

MMM Corones: Nestled on the Plan de Corones/Kronplatz at over 2,000 metres of altitude, this museum is dedicated to traditional mountaineering.

MMM Firmian: Located at the Sigmundskron Castle near Bolzano/Bozen, the MMM Firmian provides an insight into the theme of the relationship between man and the mountain.

MMM Juval: The museum developed within the walls of Juval Castle presents the mountain myth through several art collections such as the Tibetica collection.

MMM Ripa: Brunico/Bruneck Castle is home to the permanent exhibition on the history and culture of mountain societies.

MMM Ortles: In this museum in Solda/Sulden, Messner tells us about the dangers of ice and darkness, about snow people and snow lions, about the white out and the Third Pole.

MMM Dolomites: Located between Pieve di Cadore and Cortina d’Ampezzo, the “museum in the clouds” illustrates how men conquered the Dolomites.
