Since 1990 the Museum Ladin Ursus ladinicus can be found in one of the oldest buildings of San Cassiano. It is located on the market square. In this museum you can see a unique fossil collection consisting of remainings of the “Ursus spelaeus”, a species of bears that lived in the Conturines mountain range. In summer 2011 the new Museum Ladin Ursus ladinicus was opened. On three floors now you can find very interesting details of the prehistoric bear of the dolomites and also about his life 40,000 years ago.
Also folkloristic items and tools are showed.
