Holzmuseum St. Ruprecht ob Murau

St. Georgen am Kreischberg

Current information

The Wood Museum is also a destination for any weather; you can spend the whole day in the museum and the surrounding area, whether exploring the museum, social activities such as bowling, nailing, walking on stilts; or simply wander through the arboretum, there await the visitor numerous different species of trees and shrubs, many wild herbs, the barefoot path and the shelter hut. Of course, the lovingly designed wooden water playground scores points with families.

Audio guides in German, English, Hungarian and Italian.
Our guests can charge their e-bike or e-car for free at our charging station during their visit.

The wood museum has stood in the middle of the wood district of Murau in St. Ruprecht ob Murau since 1988. A special place to find out everything about the fascinating raw material wood on an indoor and outdoor area of more than 10,000 m². That a museum has to be anything but "bland" becomes clear in this real wood adventure world!

Special exhibitions 2022

- "WOOD - FASCINATION - TRADITION" The exhibition in the main building deals with the many, different customs and traditions around the material wood. Under the motto "Preserve old cultural assets and customs" and bring them back to memory. A broadly spread ramble of the Sonnwendfeuer over the "Zoachn" up to the regional customs.

- In the HolzBauHaus the exhibition "DENK mal WALD-WILD-JAGD" is shown for another year. With the theme "Nature obliges" - the motto of the Landesjägerschaft, we will show in this exhibition, which will last several years, not only everything about hunting, wild animals and their habitats, but also the ecological handling in harmony with nature. Focus 2022: roe deer, red deer and woodpeckers.

The green gold has always accompanied our lives. The wood museum shows this in old workshops (carpenters, wainwrights, coopers...) with partly unique exhibits like a woodcutter's hut and ancient agricultural tools or with curiosities like the Brockenlotter. These permanent exhibition areas are constantly renewed and changed. Every year there are new special exhibitions on "wood and forest themes", so the Wood Museum remains constantly NEW and interesting.
