This was a fantastic exhibit to tour. Well worth the drive from Germany while visiting our son. The museum was so worth it.
The museum is well laid out with descriptive in several languages. Seeing his tools and clothes was fantastic and the reproduction is well done. Our only criticism is the new information is added at the end so that you are misled and it's a bit confusing. But, it is still worth a trip.
We brought the kids over from Canazei for a day off from climbing via ferratas, hoping the exhibit of Otzi would be worth the drive & cost. We were not disappointed- even in a country with more than their share of architectural masterpieces form antiquity to current works. Most of this gem has well thought out and presented material on... More
Family and I took the train from Munich through the Bremmer pass just to visit Bolzano and the "Iceman." The museum is well laid out and we were quite surprised with some of the ages of the museum pieces (old!) We went 2 days after Christmas and had the museum to ourselves. The Iceman is very impressive to see and... More
We arrived in Bolzano late afternoon on the train from Venenzia in a cold persistant rain.and found our Bed & Breakfast close to the train station. We decided to walk to the main plaza with the intention of seeing if the museum was open - it was and we ended up spending several hours reading about the Iceman whose story... More
As this museum is the biggest in the city I took time to visit it. I have to say I have been a bit desappointed, a lot of riding but poor in discovery and proper items ! Really interactive and i really think that is perfect for families. Try to go there really early in the morning as when I... More
The museum is well-organized, very educational. The text are in Italian, German and English. Very nice and relaxing experience, yet full of archaeological, medical, forensic facts. A good place for children and adults. The only negative thing was a grumpy lady collecting the entrance fees. We will forget about her and remember the interesting story of a prehistoric man. We...

We were taken to Bolzano, and particularly the museum, as part of a Christmas package tour organised by Titan tours. The museum is entirely dedicated to exhibiting Otzi and to telling his story. We were spell-bound during our entire visit. All the artefacts collected at the site where Otzi was found in the glacier are displayed alongside very clear and... More
This musuem revolves around the well-preserved mummy of a prehistoric man found, together with his equipment, on the Italian Alps in the early 90's. This museum is just great, you will learn a lot and it will be fun! 9 euros well spent.
We visited the museum on Saturday and was really surprised to see a line of 25 people in front of us waiting for the entrance to it. The line moved forward slow and we waited for about 20 minutes. The museum has three levels and wholly designed to show the importance of discovery of the Iceman – Otzi. There were... More
