Tyrolean Wood Museum

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

In the small village of Auffach, a beautiful wooden house can be found which is in possession of the carver and sculptor Hubert Salcher. In this his birth house, in 1996 he has realized his dream of a Wood Museum, and already in 1998 the collection was awarded with the "Schatzhaus Österreichs" prize (Treasury of Austria). In 2004, the award "Museum of the Month" followed.

The Tyrolean Wood Museum (Tiroler Holzmuseum) exhibits on two floors and 1,000 sqm about 3,000 wooden show pieces. You can admire a wooden bicycle with wooden bike chain, traditional wooden masks, Christmas cribs, and musical instruments. Between the curiosities there are the oldest harp of Tyrol, made in wood of course, a wooden bra, and an exhibition of matches.

The museum shows also the furniture and the old rooms, including 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. Next to the museum, an informative thematic path about wood with 14 stations proceeds.
