A place of discovery designed on the basis of electronic and mechanical systems for a unique, playful experience through a long journey in the Alps from former times to today.

DescriptionMountaineering dates from a long time ago, but it has evolved considerably with new techniques and methods and with changing attitudes. As a visitor in this playful and educational space, you can get under a modern mountaineer’s skin through new interactive exhibition techniques.
You can come to grips with the mountains that were the major mountaineering challenges, in order to better understand the routes taken to conquer them. You can organize your own expedition to distant peaks. You can experience the void, handle the mountaineer’s tools and learn about the history of these activities. In brief, you can enjoy the experience of mountaineering without taking the risks!
