The museum SMO of San Pietro al Natisone/Špietar is dedicated to the cultural landscape that stretches from the Julian Alps to the Adriatic Sea, from Mt. Mangart to the Gulf of Trieste. The particularity of this museum is that it is not defined by a collection of objects, yet it has a narrative. Inside the SMO, there is also a Walk of Peace Visitor Centre which offers information and leaflets about the Walk of Peace from the Alps to the Adriatic trail and general information about the area.

|Closed on Holidays||Easter, 1 November, 24–26 December, 31 December|
The museum is conceived as an active, dynamic and inspiring place, based on communication; the places unfold and are narrated through aspects that characterise the culture of the area. This is a place where artistic experimentation and territories of memory are weaved together. The museum offers interactive itineraries and multimedia paintings of a landscape interpreted as a cohesion of people and places, stories and memories able to generate motivation and encourage reflection.
The museum is designed with scientific rigour but it also works as a communication device. There are a lot of different interactive installations. The new technologies installed are key elements of this interactive museum. The visitor is not a simple spectator but the protagonist of the knowledge process. The museum has also a documentation centre and an archive in constant development. Moreover, it is a research centre with designated areas for study and research, intertwining relations with the territory, public institutions and private collections.
The conference room is equipped with technologically advanced devices, able to satisfy even the most demanding requirements in meetings and cultural events.
