Happy to see a castle so well renovated and an interesting ethnographic museum together. The visit was worthing the price of the ticket and we found the mix castle/museum a great strength of the place. Ideal in case of bad weather in the area!

Great castle and good it is cared for. Spend about 2h on a rainy day. You get to see a collection of very nice objects like tents, furniture and religious items from a number of mountain peoples. Unfortunately little context is given, no stories told and so it is just that - a collection of items.

Interesting tribute to a great mountaineer - would like to see something in England to recognise the same achievement of Alan Hinkes, the only Britain to have also climbed the worlds 14 8000m peaks - museum not that interactive but I am not a museum fan - good views worth visiting

This museum is worth a visit by people who are interested in learning more about the different mountain people spread across the globe. Interestingly though distant from each other there are many similarities. The meuseum is rich with authentic artifacts from the different countries and nicely organized. Really worth a visit to it and the other MMM museums.... Looking forward to the new one which will be opening this autumn at Kronplatz.

A museum dedicated to the alps throughout the world and the people who live there. Set in the Brunico Castle the museum covers many different mountain people and their way of life. You can also climb the castle tower for a wonderful view of Brunico and the surrounding countryside.

Lots to see in here including video of the area from years gone by with some questionable English commentary!

Be warned there are many many stairs to climb if you wish to get to the top of the tower but the views over the town are worth it.

Some great architecture and also sculpture in the courtyard where we east our pre bought lunch

Well worth visit.

This is 1 of 6 Messner Mountain Museums in South Tyrol and it is dedicated to mountains people all around the world. It is located in the old Brunick Castle, at the top of a hill in the center of the town. You can get there only by feet after a 10-min walk through the park surrounding the castle. We found this museum very attractive and perfectly integrated with the ancient castle. As an architect, I can say the restoration of the building and adaptation to expository function has been achieved with great respect for ancient walls and structures. I also greatly appreciated visiting it in a semi-desert period (maybe due to high temperatures) with no bored guarding staff, as in most public museums. Explanation and multimedia devices were effective and easy-to-use. At the moment of our visit, the inner cafeteria was closed. Access to disabled visitors is granted by an inner lift. At the entrance, there is a small bookshop close to the ticket desk. Inside every room, air-conditioned with umidity controls is provided to protect the precious collections showing traditional customs and habits. From this visit, I got many suggestions I will furtherly go through. Ticket price is 9€ that you can skip if you have the Brixen Card. Greatly recommended.

Fascinating museum focusing on mountainous peoples from all over the world set in a beautiful castle. What put this above other similar museums is how the scattered pieces of the exhibits are drawn together into a unified theme that concludes in the huge tower as you wind your way up the stairs. The grand finale is a magnificent view of the castle, city, and surrounding mountains all drawn together from the top of tower.

This museum "presents mountain peoples from Asia, Africa, South America and Europe and reflects on their cultures, religions and tourism activities. The mountain culture is reflected in the daily lives of their inhabitants, who impart life and history to the mountains of the world. This heritage of the mountains, which has ensured survival over the millennia for the people living high up on the brink of life, can now be appreciated at MMM Ripa – with the help of their dwellings, videos and encounters."
Totally recommend it! Enjoy a coffee inside the walls!
PS: the visit was in June 2017

The Schloss is worth visiting for the medieval architecture---the museum itself is a hodgepodge of artifacts collected by Reinhold Messner on his world-wide journey to the worlds highest peaks, and as another visitor described ,"the worlds largest flea markets."--Alas, the museum does offer some useful history of many of the mountain people cultures. Except for the Mountain Men of America, that helped open the Mountains to merely mortal farmers and visitors. The bookstore at the end of the tour is comprised largely of books authored by Mr. Messner and adds somewhat of a self-serving and self-promoting aire.
