Das Landschaftsmuseum "Ecomuseum Simplon" verlässt die gewohnten Mauern des Museumsgebäudes und setzt Landschaft, Kultur und Geschichte miteinander in Verbindung.
Die Stiftung "Ecomuseum Simplon – Museen und Passwege" hat einerseits die Sanierung des Saumwegs über den Simplonpass, des "Stockalperweges", in die Wege geleitet. Doch zum Ecomuseum gehören auch mehrere Museen und Ausstellungen, wie das Museum "Alter Gasthof" in Simplon Dorf, das eigentliche Zentrum des Ecomuseums, die "Alte Kaserne" am Eingang zur Gondoschlucht, das Festungsmuseum Fort Gondo sowie der Stockalperturm.
