Ötzi Museum in Bolzano

Ötzi, the Iceman

Archaeological sensation, media star, research subject, museum object:

Ötzi is a glacier mummy from the Copper Age, which has been preserved to this day thanks to extraordinary circumstances and gradually reveals true treasures of knowledge. In 1991, it was accidentally discovered by mountaineers on the Schnalstal Glacier, along with clothing and equipment, and has been extensively scientifically researched since.
