MMM Ripa

At Brunico Castle in the Val Pusteria valley, the Messner Mountain Museum Ripa invites to a visit to the hill tribes of the earth.

The museum dedicated to "The heritage of the Mountain" (in Tibetan: ri = mountain, pa = man) in the Val Pusteria valley is the 4th location of the six Messner Mountain Museums. Venue for this interactive mountain museum dedicated to hill tribes and mountain people is Brunico Castle. There are exhibits regarding the everyday culture of the Sherpa, Indios, Tibetans and Hunza.

The castle itself which towers above the town of Brunico dates back to the 13th century. The old walls have been renovated with modern materials like glass and steel, and a light gray stain for the wood, which create an interesting contrast between old and new.

Today it is the ideal location to tell the history of the people which for thousands of years live in and with the mountains. Here you'll learn more about their religion and culture, and the impact of modern tourism. And how to reach the MMM Ripa? At the castle hill in Brunico there's a public parking space: A path leads you to the entrance of the castle and the museum.
