Bunker Mooseum

In Val Passiria, a pillbox tells more about nature, geology, mineralogy, history and the Gruppo di Tessa Nature Park.

In the centre of Moso in Passiria you can find the Bunker Mooseum, inaugurated some years ago. It is administered by the popular MuseumPasseier, located in a distance of about 10 km. The pillbox dates back to the 1940s, when the Italian military, beside other barriers in the Val Passiria, had the barrier “Moso” established. These barriers should prevent German troupes to invade from Passo del Rombo.

There is much to discover in this museum. A section is dedicated to the history of settlement of 10,000 years. Moreover you can visit an archaeologic findspot that can be reached across a secured path. When the museum was realised, excavations unveiled a glacial mill, ceramics and various fireplaces. Another section is dedicated to the mine of Monteneve, the highest of Europe, located further to the north. Also the pillbox itself is worth a visit. Videos provide more information about the politic situation at that time.

The Bunker Mooseum is the information point for the Gruppo di Tessa Nature Park and dedicates an entire room to this topic. It is located in the conspicuous glass tower. In the rocky terrain above the museum, ibexes live in a compound that is accessible via stairs. In 2011 an aviary with local birds such as bullfinch, European goldfinch and common redpoll has been added. And in the Bunker Mooseum you can also exercise: a climbing garden with rock and an artificial wall has been established on the façade.
