Museum Culten

In 2018, a very particular museum was opened in the Val d’Ultimo valley: the Documentation Centre Culten

On the church hill of Stan Valburga in the Val d’Ultimo valley, a new museum in an ancient farmhouse from the 14th century was opened in 2018. It is dedicated to the prehistory and ancient history of the people in the valley, both in the outdoor area and in the mystic underground region.

Already in the Bronze Age (2,200 until 800 BC) and Iron Age (750 BC until 500 AD), the Val d’Ultimo valley was settled, some traces have been preserved until today. To one of them, the Museum Culten is dedicated. It is a settlement of the Bronze and Iron Age (1400-600 BC), that changed into a burnt offerings site in the 6th century BC.

The documentation centre shows the lifestyle of the people in this period and their relation to the valley. Archaeological findings confirm the information. At Christmas time then, the museum becomes a special scenery of the market called “Zuanochten”, where farm products and live music is offered.
