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.
