Messner Mountain Museum Corones at Kronplatz
At MMM Corones, situated on the peak plateau of the Kronplatz, at a height of 2.275 metres, traditional alpinism is the focus of attention, as characterized conclusively by Reinhold Messner. Alpine history is recounted here, as part of the exhibition, as well as presenting the exceptional view of the great Dolomite and Alpine rock faces. At the edge of the greatest observation plateau in the Southern Tyrol, in the distinctive Zaha Hadid Museum building, the view unfolds in all directions, reaching across the country borders: from the Lienz Dolomites in the east to the Ortler Mountain in the west, and from the Marmolada in the south to the Zillertal in the north.
Messner Mountain Museum RIPA in Bruneck
The MMM Ripa at Bruneck Castle, once the summer residence of the Prince-Archbishop, is dedicated to the mountain tribes of the entire world – Asia, Africa, South America and Europe – as well as to their culture, religion and tourism. As mountain culture is reflected especially in the everyday life of the mountain dweller, the “heritage of the mountain”, that for centuries has ensured survival high up in the mountains, is brought closer to museum visitors by means of dwellings, films and encounters.
