1st Tirolean Wood Museum

Fascinating facts all about wood in the Wood Museum in the centre of Auffach

The region’s history has been inseparably entwined with the timber industry since the 17th century. Learn more in the 1st Wood Museum in Auffach. Wood carver Huber Salcher has turned his ancestral home into a fascinating museum.

Over 3000 exhibits are displayed in no fewer than 30 wooden chambers in the 1st Wood Museum. Through his wood carving talent Hubert has created this marvellous wooden world.
 

  • In the ancient workshop is a fully functional table radio and a pair of leather workman’s shoes with wooden soles as if the old master carver has just left the room for a moment.
  • In the crooked kitchen an original butter churn stands in one of the corners.
  • The wooden oven originates from the 17th century and still works today
  • Rare carvings and wooden miniatures in every corner fascinate the visitor.
  • Curiosities such as wooden nails and woodworm, the oldest harp in the Tirol and a wooden bra are all well worth seeing.
