The best way to learn about the culture, traditions and history of a land is to visit a museum... and South Tyrol has plenty of them.
In the Sciliar region you can visit the Farmers' Museum or the School Museum Taguns and the Spatzen Museum.
A must during a stay in South Tyrol is the visit to the Museum of Archaeology in Bolzano with Ice Man Ötzi. In Bressanone we can recommend the cribs museum. The Museum Ladin tells you everything about Ladin culture. If you are interested in wine, you should visit the Wine Museum in Caldaro. In Teodone you'll find the Museum of Ethnography, according to ADAC one of the most beautiful outdoor museums in Europe.
