Multimedia nature EXPERIENCE exhibition
The new nature park house in Längenfeld serves as an information hub and centre of competence for the Ötztal nature. The central element of the nature park house is the almost 300m² large natural history exhibition. It shows the Ötztal natural diversity in all its facets in a unique way. Special Ötztal plants, animals and habitats are explained as are the geology and the valley-shaping rockfalls. Furthermore, the ever-present theme of water in Ötztal is illustrated in all its facets, from glaciers to lakes, rivers and fenlands.
In addition to bilingual (DE/EN) information boards, the content is made accessible by means of sensory input, e.g. using audio stations, touchscreens, VR-headsets, holograms and digital mural reliefs. Exhibits in form of realistic woodcarvings reflect the aspiration to entice visitors to experience and sense for themselves the displayed special features in the valley together with nature guides.
In addition to the permanent exhibition, the nature park house is home to a 70m² large multifunctional room for mobile temporary exhibitions, lectures, seminars and workshops. A shop with regional products, a library and the nature park administration are also housed in the building. Come see for yourself!
