The exhibition at Brunico Castle, once the summer residence of the prince bishops. Dedicated to mountain people from all over the world, their culture and religion as well as tourism.
Dwellings, films and encounters introduce visitors to the ‘mountain culture’, the everyday life of mountain dwellers and the ‘legacy of the mountains’ that has ensured survival high up in the mountains for thousands of years. While modern alpinism is only 250 years old, people have lived in the mountains for more than 10,000 years: Reinhold Messner dedicates his museum in Brunico to their way of life – which varies from place to place and yet is so similar. Surrounded by mountain farms and with a view of Plan de Corones, the rural Valle Aurina and the Zillertal Alps, the city is the ideal spot for the MMM Ripa (Tibetan: ri = mountain; pa = man).

Opening hours:
MMM Ripa is open daily from 2nd Sunday in May to 1 November from 10 am – 6 pm and from 26 December to 25 April from noon – 6 pm. Closed on Tuesdays.
