The Customs Museum in Coccau is the only example of a museum dedicated to customs and the history of the Austrian-Italian border.

In its various rooms, the museum presents numerous historical testimonies of the history of the pass, such as relics, photographs, uniforms and videos.
In the museum spaces there is also an infopoint with information material available for tourists crossing the border between Italy and Austria.
