Geological Garden and Alpine Playground



Near the Viote Alpine Botanical Garden there is the well-known "Alpine playground"designed by Peter Hohenauer and created by the City of Trento in collaboration with MUSE - Science Museum. The Park was realized using natural materials, with a particular focus on water, and its philosophy is based on the experience of discovering and exploring creatively.

Respecting this philosophy a Geological Garden was created inside the playground, thanks to a project developed by MUSE and supported by Caritro Foundation. The Geological Garden displays on a small-scale all the geological features of the Trentino territory and gives visitors the possibility to touch unique rock samples of the main valleys of the province.

The project was imagined also for blind people. Therefore the Geological Garden provides Braille information material and audio guides (available on request at the ticket office of the Alpine Botanical Garden).
Guided tours with the experts of MUSE are also available (reservation required).
