The museum is only about Ötzi and his personal objects…. We expected a museum with more things to watch. The price is too much for what you see

Family-friendly design makes this museum one of the best I have ever visited. You spiral up a sloping walkway as you travel back through history to discovery how the world has changed since the Ötzi man's heyday. Good lightning and signage make for an informative visit with a great ambience.
Great storytelling, scientific explanation and artifacts. Video/audio with German, Italian and English was great. Expect to spend 2 hrs if you watch all videos. We spent another 20 min in the temp exhibition. We booked ahead but it wasn't too busy on a Thursday in early June.
