In the genuine Val Senales, strictly speaking in Madonna di Senales, there is a special destination for families, called ArcheoParc. In this interactive museum you can not only retrace the life of Oetzi, but also experience various activities on your own. You should put approx. 3-4 hours aside for the courses 1, 2 and 3. They include the exhibitions, a tree trail, house groups from the Po Plain, the northern Alpine foothills and the Alpine valleys with a show building, the footbridge, a practice archery and the public workshop with traditional bakery stove. Only the course 1 - if you want to spend less time in the open-air museum - takes approx. 1 hour (exhibitions, tree trail, house groups from the Alpine valleys with show building).
The ArcheoParc is known as an interactive museum. The exhibition is completed by a permanent exhibition on Oetzi and his contemporaries. Under the open sky, there are huts built in the way they existed in the period of the Iceman, in between there are plants of those times, that is to say from more than 5,000 years ago. In fact, every detail in the park has been adapted to the period of the Iceman. From the park you can also enjoy a great view of the Passo di Tisa, where the glacial mummy was found in 1991.
There is also a museum shop and a café, ideal for concluding a great day on holidays. By the way: if you would like to visit the glacial mummy, you can do so in the capital of South Tyrol. The South Tyrol Museum of Archeology in Via Museo in Bolzano custodies the Iceman in a cold storage cell.
