The Veneto Agriculture Regional Museum of Man in Cansiglio (MUC) is located in Pian Osteria, in the town of Tambre (BL), in the Cansiglio Regional Forest.
The building was built at the beginning of the 1950s and was used as the headquarters of primary schools for children from all over the plateau and to host families of employees of the State Forestry Corps who managed, until the end of the 1970s, the Venetian part of the forest.
In the 70s, with the aid of the Cimbrian community of Cansiglio, the Forestry Corps began a collection of documents, artifacts and work tools.
The Museum was inaugurated in 1975 and due to the passage of the Forestry Property from the State to the Regions, in 1997 the Museum was moved to the Veneto Region which entrusted its management to Veneto Agriculture.
Renovated in 2004, the Museum is currently dedicated to Dr. Anna Vieceli, executive of the Naturalistic Education Sector of Veneto Agriculture, who died prematurely, and is spread over two floors.
The Museum shows the presence of Man in Cansiglio over the centuries, highlighting how the current situation is the result of a series of interactions between ecological and anthropic factors. The exhibition presents a complete overview of the human presence in Cansiglio starting from Prehistory, with the findings dated from the Palaeolithic up to the present day.
