• South Tyrol Museum of Archaeology

    The South Tyrol Museum of Archaeology documents the entire history of the province from the Palaeolithic age to the Carolingian epoch. The museum is well known especially for Ötzi, the Iceman, exhibited with all his clothing and equipment.

    The Museum is an ideal option for families who are interested in knowing a little bit more about the history of South Tyrol. There are many family rooms where kids can read, play and experience the different epoches while parents relax.
    There is also available an app that can be downloaded to mobile devices and tells kids about the Iceman in an amusing way. Alongside the latest scientific discoveries, there are explanations about his impressive gear and tattoos, which can be examined close up in detail. The Ötzi app for children is available in three languages (English, German, Italian).
