South Tyrol Museum of Archaeology

Recommended
The Ötzi museum, as it is also known, charts the history of South Tyrol (Alto-Adige) from the first glacial period (150 000 BC) to the Carolingian period. The famous Ötzi is the star attraction. The "iceman" was found in 1991 near the Similaun glacier in the Ötztaler Alpen. He is estimated to have been about 45 when he died and was preserved in ice for 5300 years. He is now preserved in a cold chamber which keeps a constant temperature of less than 6° C.
