Tyrolean Wood Museum

The 1st Tyrolean Wood Museum with its thematic path is located in Auffach in the high valley of the Wildschönau.

In the small village of Auffach in the Wildschönau a beautiful wooden house can be found which is in possession of the carver and sculptor Hubert Salcher. In this his birth house, on two floors and 1,000 sqm, about 3,000 wooden show pieces are exhibited. A wooden bicycle with wooden bike chain, traditional wooden masks, Christmas cribs, musical instruments and furniture can be admired. At the Tyrolean Wood Museum (Tiroler Holzmuseum) is all about wood!

Besides the many impressive exhibits you also learn about the raw material of wood. Moreover you can visit the kitchen with the woodstove from the 17th century and the old workshop with the hand-made leather shoes with wooden sole. Here grandfather Salcher worked many centuries ago as a cobbler. The oldest harp of Tyrol, a wooden bra and an exhibition of matches are only some curiosities. Also a small souvenir shop is part of the Tyrolean Wood Museum.

Next to the museum an informative thematic path about wood with 14 stations proceeds. It takes the visitors on a tour of history until the modern art of wood craft. In 1996 Hubert Salcher has realized his dream of opening the museum and already in 1998 the collection was awarded. In 2004 the award "Museum of the Month" followed and also in 2016 there is something to celebrate: 40 years "Wood Carving Hubert Salcher" and 20 years "1st Tyrolean Wood Museum"!
