With its 600 m² premises the Ladin Museum in Fassa provides visitors with a glimpse into different aspects of Ladin civilisation, including pre-history, its institutional organisations, civil and religious rituals, beliefs and traditions, till to the advent of mountaineering and mass tourism - a real historic journey through the folk lore of a people.

The museum also houses the ethnographic collection of the Istitut cultural ladin. The collection results from twenty years of research focussed on the evolution of a people from its origins to the present through artefacts, which document their daily-life and spiritual culture. In order to fully reflect the image of a conscious, living community with its own language and unique history and land, the Museum also features some local sections scattered throughout the area to provide visitors with a true ethnographic journey across the entire valley.

The new venue in Pozza di Fassa opened in 2001, and is closely connected to the work carried out by anthropologist Cesare Poppi - who defined its guidelines - by architect Ettore Sottsass - who was entrusted with its setting-up - and by Milo Manara - who designed some of the tablets depicting characters from Sylvan mythology.

The museum's multimedia support system allows visitors to access 74 short one-topic films featuring a number of different languages and original soundtracks. Apart from its exhibition areas, the Museum also includes a deposit open to visits, a multimedia teaching laboratory, a book-shop and a store.
