Lake Ledro Stilt house Museum

The eastern shore of Lake Ledro, Trentino (north west of Lake Garda) is an area of important archaeological finds: in the 1930s various excavations unearthed the remains of a village on stilts dating from the Middle Bronze Age (2200-1350 BC).In 2011 the site was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
The summer of 2019 sees the museum, which is part of the MUSE Science Museum network, given a completely new look thanks to heavy investment by the Autonomous Province of Trento. The new exhibition is all about trasparency and lightness and offers visitors full immersion into a space without borders and obligatory itineraries. Starting with the pile dwellings as an Alpine and European phenomenon, it moves on to look at the dimension of the village and its sorrounding area, then zooms in further to explain the single individuals, and the similarities and differences between people today and those who lived 4.000 years ago.

In the spring and autumn months the museum offers educational and teaching activities and in the summer months it offers "Palafittando", a rich program of experimental archeology workshops and simulations, concert performances, and themed events.
