The museum explores the history of the different pile dwelling settlements following one another along the banks of Lake Carera, a lake of glacial origin, between the Late Neolithic era and the Bronze Age.

Excavations have brought to light the remains of huts constructed on the banks of the lake (3800-3600 B.C.), but also  the classic model of pile dwelling erected over the water (1800-1500 B.C.). An evolution of this type of construction is represented by huts on piles anchored to a complex grid structure resting along the banks and on the bed of the lake (1500 - 1300 B.C.). In the last centuries of the 2nd millennium B.C. the settlement moved to the nearby Dos Gustinaci, where houses with stone foundations have been found.

The museum displays a selection of extraordinary objects many of which are astoundingly modern. Thousands of objects fell into the water, either accidentally or thrown there in the pile dwelling time, providing precious evidence of considerable technical and construction expertise and artisan skills. They include ceramic pottery, but also bronze jewellery and Baltic amber and gold – extremely rare in this era. The 300 or so wooden objects on display represent a unique collection in Europe; there are dishes and cooking utensils, such as cups, ladles and trays, working tools such as buckets, clubs, sickles and axe handles, in addition to a bow and some arrows. The particular environmental conditions of the lake deposits have even led to the recovery of foodstuffs such as ears of wheat, cornelian cherries, nuts, apples and pears.


The Museum is a Unesco World Heritage Site and houses wooden objects and food, amazingly still intact after nearly 4 thousand years.
