Our Exhibitions



The King

and His Throne


Our adventure exhibition lets you track the Alpine ibex through seven exhibition rooms over three levels. Walk across the sheer ‘rock face’ and find out more about the high-mountain habitat and all its facets. The seasonal and daytime migrations of the mighty Alpine ibex are recreated just as authentically as the continual struggle for survival in high-mountain habitats, all of which usually remains hidden from us as human beings. Besides numerous models and interactive games, the exhibition also offers cinematic flights of fancy. Indeed, state-of-the-art technology invites you to get to know famous mountain formations from the eagle’s perspective and to experience large-scale, small-scale and micro-habitats up close.


The Grossglockner

at the Turn of the Century


The life work of passionate high-mountain photographer Dr Karl Kaser (1861 - 1942) comprises some 400 photographs of the Hohe Tauern. Yet these picturesque photographs taken in the Glockner, Ankogel and Goldberg mountain groups are more than just an aesthetic testimony. They also provide an account of the way our high-mountain landscape has evolved and how much the glaciers have retreated. Join us as we embark on a journey to the world of yesterday and experience the Hohe Tauern as they were 100 years ago!
