In Moso in Passiria you can find the Bunker Mooseum. Together with the Timmel Transit Museum, the "Passo del Rombo Experience" and the new Stieber Mooseum, it forms the UpperPassiria Museum. An additional facility of this project is under construction: the Plata CultMuseum in the old rectory. The bunker itself dates back to the 1940s, when the Italian military - beside other barriers in the Val Passiria valley - had the barrier "opera 3 - sbarramento di Moso" established. It was part of the so-called "Alpine Wall" to prevent German troupes to invade from the pass.
There is much to discover in the Bunker Mooseum: A section is dedicated to the history of settlement of 10,000 years. It offers also an archaeologic findspot - when the museum was realised, excavations unveiled a glacial mill, ceramics and various fireplaces. Other sections are dedicated to the Monteneve Mine, the highest one of Europe at 2,355 m a.s.l., located further to the north, to the bunker itself and the historical context.
Furthermore, the Bunker Mooseum, more precisely its conspicuous Glass Tower, acts as Tessa Group Nature Park-Info Point. In the rocky terrain above the museum, ibexes live in a compound that is accessible via stairs, and an aviary is home to rock partridges. And how to reach it? It is located in Moso in Passiria, approx. 27 km north of Merano along the SS 44. The bus lines 240 (Merano - San Leonardo) and 241 (San Leonardo - Moso in Passiria) are operating in the valley.
