Lake Ledro Pile-Dwelling Museum

Discover the history of the first settlements on the shores of Lake Ledro.

Created in the 1970s and now a branch of MUSE, the Museum of Science, and part of ReLED, the Museum Network of the Ledro Valley: the Pile Dwelling Museum at Lake Ledro.

In 1929, more than 10,000 piles dating back to the Bronze Age were discovered in Lake Ledro. An impressive and one of the most important pile-dwelling sites in Italy and Europe, declared a World Heritage Site by the UNESCO in 2011. The museum is a journey into the everyday life of prehistoric peoples who lived here more than 4000 years ago. This exhibition was made possible thanks to the finds from the water and the replica of typical huts, which have been furnished true to original.

The lake contained some extraordinary objects that finally came to light: an old canoe almost five metres long, pieces of cloth, blades, diadems and bronze pins. In the pile-dwelling museum you can also learn interesting facts about grain cultivation and its importance for the production of bread.

The museum organises educational tours for school classes and numerous activities for children, adults and families, which also require skill. A unique experience!
