The Museum Alpin is a multifaceted exhibition site for the mountain world: Fauna, flora, and geology of the mountains of Grisons region are presented here as well as Alpine culture. The exhibitions about summer and winter tourism are something of a highlight, providing an insight into the pioneering days of mountaineering, from the conquest of the Bernina Range to modern alpinism. Also well worth a visit is the exhibition on the development of SAC huts and the multimedia presentations on ”Mountain experience“, ”Alpine flowers“, ”Butterflies“ and the special show. The Museum Alpin, founded in 1971 by the Association of Mountain Guides Pontresina, is located in Pontresina on Chesa Delnon in a stately Engadine building dating from 1716. Today, members of the association "Pro Museum Alpin Pontresina" contribute to the museum’s operation. You can help, too: as an active member for CHF 50.- or as a patron member for CHF 100.- per year.
