The well-known museum in San Candido tells the story of the world-famous Dolomites.

Come to the Museum Dolomythos and make a trip through the history of the Dolomites, from primeval times until today, learning a lot about its mountains and inhabitants as well as the crystal treasure of the Dolomites.

This very special museum created by Michael Wachtler will get you to meet the most interesting inhabitants of the Dolomites, like for example the Conturines bear, saurians and more.
