A modern museum telling you more about the history of mountain photography from its beginnings until the present day
Riscone, Bolzano (2018)
On the edge of the summit plateau of Mt. Kronplatz, above 2,000 m of altitude, LUMEN Museum of Mountain Photography, offers interesting insights as well as breath-taking views to its visitors.
The museum combines nostalgia and innovation, adventure and illusion, nature and art. Permanent and special exhibitions are showing the different facets of mountain photography on a surface of 1,800 m².
Spanning four floors LUMEN offers the possibility to experience the history of mountain photography from its beginnings until the present as well as displaying the art of mountain-photographers from all over the world. A scientific approach and entertainment are not contradictions — LUMEN shows historic pictures and digital innovations, exciting temporary and special exhibitions as well as spectacular productions.
The curated program stands out due to its interdisciplinary character: alpinism, tourism, politics, spirituality and history — the subject mountains is examined from different perspectives.
In addition to the photographic exhibition, at the Lumen Museum, you can also try interactive experiences such as the Room of Mirrors or the Eagle View, which allows you to experience the thrill of flying like an eagle over the Dolomites with virtual reality.”
