Bunker Mooseum

The museum, which is part of the UpperPassiria Museum, is housed in a bunker in the Val Passiria valley.

In Moso in Passiria (Moos in Passeier) you can find the Bunker Mooseum. Together with the new Timmel Transit Museum and the “Passo del Rombo Experience” with its different stations, it forms the UpperPassiria Museum. Two additional facilities of this museum project are under construction: the Stieber Museum in the old Moso hydroelectric power station and the Plata CultMuseum. 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”, an Italian system of fortifications, in this case to prevent German troupes to invade from Passo del Rombo mountain 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 that can be reached across a secured path - 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 information point for the Gruppo di Tessa Nature Park.

In the rocky terrain above the museum, ibexes live in a compound that is accessible via stairs, and an aviary is home to local birds such as bullfinch, European goldfinch and common redpoll. Here you can also exercise: a climbing garden with rock and an artificial wall has been established on the façade. And how to reach the Bunker Mooseum? It is located in the village centre of Moso in Passiria, approx. 27 km north of Merano along the SS 44. The bus lines 240 (Merano - San Leonardo in Passiria) and 241 (San Leonardo - Moso in Passiria) are operating in the valley.
