Local museum with finds from the Palaeolithic period

Description

The exhibition in the Dragon hole museum focuses on finds from the Dragon's Hole (including Paleolithic cave bear bones) and documents from the excavation period 1917-1923. The talented draughtsman Toni Nigg (1908-2000) was present during the excavations and has lovingly turned the museum into a true jewel. He also integrated an overview of local geology. In the small but fine local museum there is also a collection of minerals, Roman coins from the 3rd century AD and tools of the old cooperage. Since July 2006 the faithful model of the historical Walser settlement St. Martin on a scale of 1:10 100 years ago has enriched the attractive museum. Guided tours are available on request (duration: approx. 80 minutes)
