Reinhold Messner dedicated a series of museums to his passion of the mountains. Three of them are found near Braies.
MMM Corones is situated at an altitude of 2,275 m on Plan de Corones. The museum in Corones deals with the history of the Alps and includes the unique view of the majestic rock-faces of the Dolomites and the Alps. The distinctive museum building by the Iranian and internationally renowned architect Zaha Hadid is impressive.
MMM Ripa was set up in Brunico Castle. Under the motto “heritage of the mountains” visitors discover the world of mountain peoples through dwellings, films and encounters.
Between Pieve di Cadore and Cortina d‘Ampezzo arises Monte Rite (2,181 m). From the plateau of its summit a 360° panoramic view of the most spectacular peaks of the Dolomites opens up: Monte Schiara, Monte Agnèr, Monte Civetta, Marmolada, Monte Pelmo, Tofana di Rozes, Sorapis, Antelao, Marmarole. It is not surprising that the theme of the MMM Dolomites is rock. The museum is dedicated to the history of the exploration of the Dolomites.
