An exhibition dedicated to Ötzi the Iceman: a mummy from the Copper Age, 5300 years old, together with his clothing and equipment.
The permanent exhibition at the South Tyrol Museum of Archaeology is dedicated entirely to Ötzi, the Iceman. It is housed on three floors of the Museum and displays everything of interest about the world’s most famous glacier mummy. The exhibition covers the circumstances surrounding Ötzi’s accidental discovery on 19 September 1991, the international media response, the original finds themselves (the mummy together with his clothing and equipment), daily life in the Copper Age and multidisciplinary research carried out on the find of the century. A highlight of the exhibition is the life-like reconstruction of the Iceman, which vividly portrays how the Iceman may have looked during his lifetime.
