Monte Verità is a place of extraordinary cultural significance. Few other places during the 20th century hosted such many alternative personalities. Artists, writers, philosophers, dancers, all attracted both by the mild climate and the beautiful view of Lake Maggiore, and by the desire to find like-minded individuals with whom to share a path of artistic and spiritual research. 

The history and personalities who inhabited this place come alive in the museum complex consisting of the following buildings:

the Casa Anatta Museum, which houses the historic exhibition "Monte Verità. Le mammelle della verità" by Harald Szeemann and the new one "Le verità di una montagna" by Andreas Schwab;

the Casa Selma “air-light hut”, built in 1904 by the first settlers, where it is possible to see a film on the history of Monte Verità;

the House of the Russians (Casa dei russi), whose name pays tribute to the presence of numerous Russian students at Monte Verità after 1910. Today it houses temporary exhibitions;

the Elisarion Pavilion, which houses the work "Il Chiaro Mondo dei Beati" (1920-1939) by Elisàr von Kupffer.
