Geological Museum of the Dolomites - Predazzo


The Geological Museum of the Dolomites in Predazzo is a museum with a long tradition, opened to the public in 1899 on the initiative of the "Società magistrale di Fiemme e Fassa". It is the result of the strong attention given to these areas by the international geological research since the early nineteenth century, when precisely in Predazzo took shape a new theory about the origin of the mountains.

The museum, part of the MUSE Science Museum of Trento network since 2012, tells the story of the Dolomites of Fiemme and Fassa and their millenary relationship with the territory and the local population with a contemporary museological approach focused on the relationship with visitors.

Its collections include a large selection of local paleontological specimens and numerous minerals that constitute a real geological heritage. The museum collaborates with Italian universities in the field of stratigraphy of the Middle Triassic and for over twenty years has been running valuable educational and scientific dissemination activities.

The Science Museum has been engaged for some years with the town of Predazzo in the dissemination and communication of geology. This has allowed for a series of training proposals to be developed, which are carried out in the spaces in and around the Geological Museum.
