The Messner Mountain Museums (MMM) in South Tyrol and Belluno


Magic of the mountains - South Tyrol’s Messner Mountain MuseumsGet closer to the mountains, understand them, meet their people – with his Messner Mountain Museum project, or MMM for short, the South Tyrol-native and extreme mountaineer, Reinhold Messner, has created five museums which express the passion for the mountains in a very special way.

All in all there are five museums, all in different locations. The mountain museums’ headquarters are in Sigmundskron Castle in Firmian near Bolzano. MMM Firmian covers 1100 square metres, where visitors can find out all about the history and art of mountain climbing.
In contrast, MMM Juval in Naturns deals with the myth of the mountain. The castle is also Messner’s summer residence.
Further into the Vinschgau Valley is the Alpine Curiosa, which tells mountaineers’ stories and exhibits curiosities from the Alpine region; it is part of MMM Ortles, which is situated at the foot of the majestic Ortler in Sulden and which deals with the subject of South Tyrol’s highest mountain and the eternal ice.

The newest of the five mountain museums, MMM Ripa, can be found in the east of the region. Mountain peoples from all over the world, such as Mongols, Sherpas and many more, await visitors at Brunico Castle.

Finally, MMM Dolomites in the Italian province of Belluno is entirely dedicated to the subject of rock. This museum, which is located on Monte Rite, portrays the history of the development of the Dolomites.

Interested? Then let yourself be carried away by the magic of the mountains and visit South Tyrol’s Messner Mountain Museums. The mountain is calling…
