Informationen zu South Tyrol Museum of Mining - Museum in a Grain Store

Copper has been mined in Prettau for over 500 years. The administrative center of the mines was in Steinhaus (Cadipietra). Since the autumn of 2000, the former granary, the pantry warehouse for the mines, has been the home of the Steinhaus Mining Museum. The main focus of the presentation is the extensive collection of the Enzenberg family. The history of mining in the Ahrn (Aurina) Valley is brought back to life through precious wooden models of mining equipment, paintings and artistically decorated maps of the pits, books, documents, and archeological finds from the mines. And 15 km. (9 miles) away in Prettau (Predoi), there is an exhibition mine with over twenty tunnels and shafts through ore deposits at an elevation of 1,400 to 2,100 m. (4,600 to 6.900 ft.) The visit includes a ride on the mining rail in the St. Ignaz shaft (1.1 km. / 3/4 mi.) from which cement copper is still extracted. In 2001, an asthma therapy station was also set up in this shaft.
