The Forest Museum, in loc. Poranceto - Baigno, exploits the recovered area of some old rural buildings in a wonderful centuries-old chestnut tree forest: stable, barn, and dry-house for chestnuts. The small hall on the ground floor presents the botanical, vegetation, and silvicultural features of the four main mountain forests: mixed oak forest, chestnut tree forest, beech tree forest, conifer reforestations; on the gallery, closed by a big and charming glass wall facing the forest, there is a diorama focusing on the relationship forest-animals, while downstairs, in the road environment, the museum deals with the relationship man-forest in its historical development: the traditional management (timber, charcoal), and the chestnut civilization (forest management, transformation, products), with the help of two relief models representing a charcoal pile and a chestnut dry-house.
Opening times: Open on Sundays and holidays (2nd June, 15th August) from June to September, from 2.30 pm to 6.30 pm
