The conditions in the mountains above the tree line are often described as extreme and hostile to life. In fact, they differ significantly from those at lower altitudes: winters are long, summers short, weather changes frequent and unpredictable. Nevertheless, thousands of creatures inhabit these altitudes. Due to their sophisticated specializations, they are extremely susceptible to change.

The special exhibition "Summiteers and Sleeping Caps" presents more than 30 plants and animals of the Grisons mountains. Specimens, dioramas, photos, sound recordings and films tell exciting and unexpected things about these creatures.

The exhibition opens the eyes to the wonders of the mountains. In this way, it encourages visitors to experience and discover the nature of the Alps outside. At the same time, it strengthens the awareness and sensitivity for the uniqueness of the natural treasures of the mountains on the doorstep.
