MUSE - Museo delle Scienze

The MUSE is located south of the historic Palazzo delle Albere in the new city district Le Albere, which was planned by the architect Renzo Piano. It stretches over 6 floors with a length of 130 m each, the entire area is about 12,600 m². In the museum science and technology show the interaction of humans and the environment. The MUSE especially invites young, children and families to a wonderful journey into science and nature. The metaphor of the mountain is used in the exhibition to relate life on earth, the first Alpine dwellers, the history of the Dolomites and nature of the Alps. The MUSE also organises numerous events and temporary exhibitions. A special experience is “Maxi Ooh!”, a room for children from 0 to 6 years. A place of sensory experiences with touching, smelling, looking, seeing, and hearing. Fun is guaranteed! Please note: dogs of all sizes are not permitted in the museum.

A gem built by Renzo Piano

An incredible museum in collections as well as the building itself and the garden. The structure stands near the railway, which does not matter at all, and the mountains near make a sgtriking backdrop. Coffee in the cafe is really good.

Castello del Buonconsiglio Monumenti e Collezioni Provinciali

The Buonconsiglio Castle is the largest and most important monumental complex of the Trentino Alto Adige region. It was the residence of the prince-bishops of Trento from the 13th century to the end of the 18th century, and is composed of a series of buildings of different eras, enclosed by walls and positioned slightly higher than the city. Castelvecchio is the oldest nucleus, dominated by an imposing cylindrical tower; the Magno Palazzo is the 16th century expansion in the Italian Renaissance-style as commissioned by the Prince-Bishop and Cardinal Bernardo Cles (1485-1539); the Baroque-style Giunta Albertiana dates from the end of the 17th century. At the extreme south of the complex is the Torre Aquila, within which is conserved the famous Cycle of the Months, one of the most fascinating secular pictorial cycles of the late Middle Ages.

Cattedrale di San Vigilio

The Early Christian basilica of Saint Vigilius was built outside the city walls presumably around the end of the fourth century. The structure’s original purpose was as a burial place for the missionaries in Anaunia Sisinius, Martyrius, and Alexander, murdered in the Val di Non by pagans on 29 May 397. Alongside the martyrs Vigilius, the third bishop and the patron saint of Trent was also buried.
