Tecneum - Museum of Technology

The Tecneum’s Technology Mile gives virtually and on location access to cable cars, hydroelectric plants and railways

In 1995 the Committee on the Cultural Values of Technology - "Kuratorium für Technische Kulturgüter" in German, "Curatorium per i Beni Tecnici Culturali" in Italian - was founded to document and make accessible technical and historical sites such as cable cars, hydroelectric power stations and railway installations. So a virtual museum for technical cultural assets was born as well as a national course aimed at these special places. Mountain railways, power stations, artificial lakes and roads were often built under adverse conditions and are partly true masterpieces of engineering. The Tecneum's virtual display collection offers historically interesting objects and ensembles from 200 years of technology as well as an object database.

Part of the project is also the so-called Technical Culture Mile, which is integrated into the cycle path network of South Tyrol and leads to 50 very special places, such as the railway stations of the Val Venosta. Conferences, exhibitions and technical development events complete the offer of the committee. For example, "150 years of the Brennero Railway" were commemorated with an exhibition in the Fortezza Fortress some years ago. And how to reach the Museum of Technology?

It is located under the Arcades of Bolzano, more precisely in Via dei Portici no. 71 in the old town of Bolzano, but the collection of power plants, railways, engineering structures, cable cars, architecture etc. can be seen virtually - the database is divided into three areas: technical milestones, geographical locations and historical reference points.
