I wasn't sure if we would enjoy the museum as some other reviews we read in advance complained that there was not much information on the castle. That's true. However, there are a gazillion abandoned castles in Italy. You go to this museum to "experience"...More

As a lifelong rock climber and mountaineer, this attraction was high on my list of things to see during my lifetime. Being a castle crawler only piqued my interest in this particular Messner Mountain Museum. The exhibits are mostly photographic with a few mineral displays,...More

Very nice preserved castle that doubles as a museum to mountaineering. The walk down to the castle from the park plotz is over a rough and uneven trail through the woods. If members of your party have difficulties walking then be sure to drop them...More
