Guided tours & important information

The interior of the renovated “Batteria” is like the nave of a church with twenty side altars. In these niches, Reinhold Messner explores the history of the development of the Dolomites step by step. He employs relics, works of art and fossils to present the origins and history of rock climbing with reference to the Dolomites. As the exhibition is self-explanatory, no provision has been made for guided tours.

How to get there

Important information for buses: the road from Venas to Cibiana is currently only passable for cars and minibuses due to the construction of a new bridge.
Normal buses must take the diversions via Longarone and Zoldo to get to Passo Cibiana (the route is thus extended by approx. 42 km).
Alternatively, a shuttle ride from Venas is also possible; early organisation is necessary!

By car: Brenner-Modena motorway (A22), exit at Brixen or Klausen in the direction of the Dolomite passes, pass through Cortina d’Ampezzo and take road no. SS51 as far as Cibiana di Cadore. Venice-Belluno motorway (A27), take the exit for Cadore and road no. SS51 as far as Venas di Cadore, on the left until Cibiana di Cadore. Car park at Passo Cibiana. Shuttle bus to the museum or follow the path (2-hour walk).
