The Iceman’s Return to South Tyrol
On 16th January 1998, the Iceman and his belongings were transported from the Institute for Anatomy of Innsbruck University to the newly-built South Tyrol Museum of Archaeology in Bolzano.
The mummy, carefully packed in crushed ice, was transported in the presence of scientists, politicians, spectators and the international press. Strict security precautions were taken.
The entire first floor of the museum is dedicated to the Iceman find.
