The museum is spread over ten rooms and illustrates all the aspects concerning the cutting, transport and transfer of large quantities of timber, which lasted centuries, made to flow freely, first freely and then tied in rafts, from the valleys of the province of Belluno towards the Veneto plain and especially towards Venice, along what was the main road for transport, the Piave river. Venice supports its foundations on millions of trunks fixed at the bottom of the lagoon, mostly coming from the woods of the Belluno area. The timber also served for the construction of the houses of the palaces and ships of Venice.
