The biggest draws among the museums of Venosta Valley are the two branches of the Messner Mountain Museum
(MMM) founded by mountaineer Reinhold Messner (with 5 branches in total around South Tyrol): the underground museum located in Solda/Sulden at the Ortler mountain
(at an altitude of 1900m) and the branch at Juval Castle
, which is dedicated to the more spiritual aspects of "mountain mythology".
Apart from the historical Museum of the Ortler region
, there are also five visitors centers
in the Stelvio National Park
. These provide insights into the flora and fauna
of the unique Ortler-Cevedale massif. The Churburg Castle
in Sluderno/Schluderns boasts a Romanesque chapel and a large collection of weapons and armor. The Vintschger Museum
is host to two permanent exhibitions, on archaeology in the region and the history of the local rural population.
