About South Tyrol Museum of Archaeology

The Iceman was discovered in 1991 on the glacier and is now part of the permanent exhibition of the South Tyrol Museum of Archaeology

The South Tyrol Museum of Archaeology in Bolzano/Bozen, South Tyrol,
Italy, was opened on the 28th of March, 1998. In its 1,200 square
meters of exhibition rooms, it documents on three floors the chalcolithic mummy
"Iceman" (nicknamed "Oetzi") and the artifacts
found with him. The most unique fact
about the complex of archaeological finds which came to light in 1991 at the glacier's
edge is the discovery of a fully-clothed, fully-equipped mummy, providing a
glimpse of the clothes and technical abilities of the late Neolithic Age (3,300
to 3,100 B.C.).
