The complex and dynamic evolution of the Park is presented, as in an experimentation laboratory, by means of explanatory models, multimedia systems and interactive games, many role plays and a unique "sensory area" that gives visitors the opportunity to appreciate nature’s scents and hear the typical sounds of the wood.
The Cogne Visitors Centre develops the following themes: Water, by means of models that show the effects of water on the land, describe floods and the interaction between human dwellings and hydro geological aspects; Wood and Pasture, by means of a "multimedia" immersion in the life of a woodsman and the simulation of significant choices for wood conservation; Wildlife and Man, where interaction methods between man and animals can be analysed.
Besides its natural target, the visitor who loves nature, the Centre also speaks to schools, since the exhibition, for the topics dealt with and its interactive mode of use, is well suited to students’ groups visits.
During opening times, a Park ranger is present in the Centre, who can provide expert and detailed information to satisfy all curiosities.
The visitors centre of the Valle d'Aosta side of the Park are managed in collaboration with Fondation Grand Paradis.
The use of the mask is recommended, especially in crowded contexts.
