The four museum structures of the South Tyrol Mining Museum belong to the Provincial Museums of South Tyrol.

The Mining Museum concept comprises the Mining Museum in a Grain Store in Cadipietra as well as the Show Mine and the Climatic Gallery in Predoi, located in the genuine Valle Aurina, a tributary valley of the Val Pusteria. The remaining two museums, the Mining World Ridanna Monteneve and the Adventure Mine Monteneve, are located between Ridanna in the Alta Valle Isarco and the Val Passiria near Merano.
The “I breathe…” Climatic Gallery in Predoi is actually not a museum, but visitors make a ride into the mine for health reasons. The microclimate of this abandoned mine, about 1,100 m in the interior of the mountain, alleviates the symptoms of respiratory diseases, as the air is pure, allergy-free and pollen-free.
