Ötzi the Iceman — Prehistoric Time Traveler is developed in collaboration with the South Tyrol Museum of Archaeology. The exhibition is curated by Dr. Angelika Fleckinger, director of the South Tyrol Museum of Archaeology.
Preserved by glacier ice: It was the archaeological sensation of the year 1991: a German couple found a mummified body on a glacier in the Ötztal Alps. Soon scientists realized that the man buried in the ice is the oldest wet mummy in the world. For more than 5000 years, Ötzi and his belongings, the clues to his age and life, have rested in ice.
Today, we, for example, know what he ate, how he lived, how he died, how old he was, what diseases he had or what the reasons for his 61 tattoos were. Ötzi the Iceman — Prehistoric Time Traveler gives visitors from all over world the chance to experience Ötzi firsthand and to learn more about their ancestors.
