The Fassa Ladin Museum houses the ethnographic collections of the Ladin Cultural Institute, the result of twenty years of research. These are concerned with various aspects of Ladin civilization: prehistory, economic activities, the development of political institutions, religious and secular rituals, popular beliefs and traditions, historical dynamics and the deep changes induced by the development of mountaineering and tourism in the last century. A museum that brings history back to life with hands on exhibits, interactive panels and touch-screen technology.
The museum was conceived and planned as a territorial museum. It therefore consists of several local theme-sections set in pre-existing, real ethnographic sites such as: "La Sia" (Venetian style water sawmill) in Penìa di Canazei, "L Stònt" (the Marksmen’s lodge) in Campitello di Fassa, "L Malghier" (the cheese making) in Pera di Fassa, "L Molin de Pèzol" (18th century mill) in Pera di Fassa, "L Segat" (the Forestry) in Pozza di Fassa.
Since 1975 the Ladin Cultural Institute has among its tasks the collection, ordering and study of everything referring to history, economics, language, folklore, mythology and traditions of Ladin people. It also encourages the spread of the Ladin language and culture through the media, it collaborates with schools.
