DescriptionThe contemporary Forestry department is a successor to the former Museum of Forestry, Logging and Hunting, which first opened its doors to the public in 1953 as an autonomous unit of the Technical Museum of Slovenia. The primary aims and objectives of this section of the museum are to preserve industrial heritage pertaining to forestry, to study the history of forestry in Slovenia, as well as to promote sustainable and nature-friendly principles of forest management. The forestry exhibition was renovated in July 2012. There are four sections focussing on: Ecology of Forest, Forest Measurements, Forest Resources, and Modern Forestry. Behind the museum there is also a 2.3 kilometre- long forest nature trail with 23 stops, beginning and ending at the museum. Along the way, and in a humorous manner, caricatures explain the basic functions of the forest compositions and associations, together with their general significance to society as a whole.
