Pile dwelling museum - Ledro

In Molina, on the eastern shores of Lake Ledro, there is a small village on stilts trees corresponding the Bronze Age.
Reference point for many archaeologists and scientists of the Bronze Age, it preserves handmade articles which are over 4.000 years old and were all collected in the pile dwelling hermitage of the picturesque Lake Ledro.
Founded in Molina in the late sixties, the museum preserves refined craft products that were found in 1929 on the occasion of a significant decrease of the level of the water.
