The Children's Alps
Completely redone in 2023, this space devoted to getting to know the mountains, dedicated to children and families, offers a series of scientific workshops, within the Opera Vittorio, on the topic of climate change and the impact it is having on glaciers throughout the world.
Each room allows the visitor to learn about the four most important peaks in Valle d’ Aosta - Monte Rosa, The Matterhorn, Gran Paradiso and Mont Blanc - and the conditions of the glacial areas of each one through a series of photographic comparisons. Each room also presents a geological and scientific theme that can be explored in depth via recreational activities and workshops.
The place also hosts the Ice Memory installation with various stations that use augmented reality to talk about the state of health of the glaciers and to involve young people in understanding the dynamics linked to climate warming and to promote the adoption of sustainable behaviour.
The space can be used freely by purchasing an entrance ticket to Fort Bard.
Workshops addressed to schools and groups can be carried out for a fee upon reservation.
