The natural and environmental history of South Tyrol is exhibited on two floors with an area of about 1,000 sq. m. (11,000 sq. ft.)
The palace that today houses the Provincial Museum of Natural History was formerly the administrative office building of Emperor Maximilian I. The natural and environmental history of South Tyrol is exhibited on two floors with an area of about 1,000 sq. m. (11,000 sq. ft.) Interesting featured exhibitions are displayed on the ground floor (about 200 sq. m. / 2,200 sq. ft.) There are also instructional events. The itinerary through the exhibit takes the form of a journey through time, assisted by models, dioramas, experiments, and multimedia stations that shed light on the geological history of South Tyrol and the formation and development of the natural habitat.
