It' snot only the mummy itself that makes the place unique, but the dozens of artefacts from bronze age that he carried when he was preserved in the glacier like Bow, arrows, healing mushrooms and so on. And you learn about how Ötzi lived, how he died what he ate ...

The museum is really nice! All of the articles are connected, have the same story, come from the same place. That makes it a LOT more interesting than when you go to a normal museum and see a coin from whatever year, a jar from wherever place and that's pretty boring. This is different.

This is where the famous Iceman lies and the museum brings you through how he was discovered, his autopsy, his life etc. It focused the Iceman and the era he lived in. The town is beautiful and fresh. I stopped by on my way to Germany.

A very interesting Museum revolving around Otzi the man from the ice, well laid out, also interesting for children, not to be missed when visiting Bolzano ( also has the best clean WC in town)

We found this museum dedicated to Otzi the iceman fascinating. Lots of interactive displays for all ages, as well as Otzi himself

This is a small but well laid out museum. The iceman mummy was very cool to see (pardon the pun!) but the really impressive display was all the artifacts that the iceman carried with him. Truly amazing and an age-old mystery.

Fascinating exhibition focused on Ötzi the Iceman, a 5,300 year old mummy that was found in a receding glacier in 1991.

Our whole family enjoyed our visit. Our youngest daughter just learned about Otzi last year. There was so much for us to learn.
