The Messner Mountain Museum comprises not only the six main museums with their permanent and annual exhibitions but also three mini-museums. Admission is free to these mini-museums, which serve as a sample offer, i.e. they are designed to attract attention and visitors to the main museums. The tiny museum in the Flohhäuschen (Flea Hut), where mountaineers once found a bed for the night, was the very first museum. It started with the presentation of Paul Preuss’ hammer and a few other things that should not exist if we want to believe in the ideals of the great masters of alpinism. Reinhold Messner exhibits these curiosities like relics, as tokens of little human weaknesses, and tells the story of mountaineering in the Ortler Group.
