The museum is dedicated to the activities of the Tax Police. Documents, period photographs and exhibits narrate the military, sport and mountaineering history of the Skiing Unit of the Tax Police - the so-called "yellow flames", established in 1925 - as well as of their Alpine School. The museum is located in Predazzo and its three rooms feature an ever-expanding collection, thanks to donations from former officers as well as from civilians. Since 1995, it has been headquartered in the Alpine School of the Tax Police. This is the oldest Alpine military school in the world, and was established in 1920 to train young recruits who joined this military corps, which at the time used to work mainly in the Alpine area.
