Picture of the Day: A Mountain Museum at the Top of an Actual Mountain
The Messner Mountain Museum Corones is the final act in the Messner Mountain Museum project (which comprises a total of six facilities).
MMM Corones is situated on the summit plateau of Kronplatz (2275 m) and is dedicated to mountaineering, which Reinhold Messner has strongly influenced. The museum is devoted to the alpine history, traditions and disciplines of mountaineering and offers unique views of the big walls of the Dolomites and the Alps.
The museum was built and designed by Zaha Hadid Architects at the center of South Tyrol, Italy’s most popular ski resort area.
MMM Corones is open 7 days a week, from the first Sunday of June to the second Sunday of October and from the end of November to mid-April.
