Technical Museum of Slovenia Collections


The first timber-processing exhibits at Bistra were contemporaneous the forestry collection which opened in 1953. As a matter of fact, the woodworking department is a most logical supplement to the forestry one, and covers the conversion of raw trunks into semi-manufactured and manufactured products. The outdoor exhibits comprise of the water-powered Venetian and veneer sawmills, both of which stand beside the karstic source of Bistra stream. The other collections, all of which are inside the main museum complex, feature an exhibition of tools and machinery used in timber processing, saw milling and furniture making.
