Collepietra Local Museum

In Collepietra in the Val d’Ega valley, one of South Tyrol’s most beautiful museums of local history is located.

At the church square of Collepietra, a district of Cornedo, the Collepietra Local Museum - "Museum Steinegg" in German, "Museo Locale di Collepietra" in Italian - is located, which houses 1,000 years of Tyrolean history on more than 1,000 sqm of exhibition space. The museum tells of the past times in the village and its surroundings, of life at court, of the deep faith of the population and of the ancient crafts that are preserved here from being forgotten.

Folk art, furnishings and tools as well as traditional costumes and art treasures are exhibited and you can also admire a mineral collection and get to know the local flora and fauna. Also shown are sacral works from the old parish church: the Resurrection Chapel is one of the highlights of the museum. Together with its approx. 18,000 lovingly collected exhibits, it occupies three floors, 18 rooms and an area of more than 1,000 sqm. The Collepietra Local Museum is considered one of the most beautiful museums of local history in the region.

By the way: This high plateau in the Val d'Ega valley is widely known, because in the neighbouring village of San Valentino in Campo, the First European Star Village, an Astronomical Observatory and the Planetarium South Tyrol are located. And how to reach the museum? It can be found near the church, not far from it the bus line 182 (Bolzano - Collepietra) stops. If you want to combine your visit with a hike, the path to the Earth Pyramids of Collepietra starts in the village.
