Mushrooms


The Mushroom Museum has a rich collection. It consists of mushroom sculptures made one by one, maintaining an absolute color, shape and size similarity. Mushrooms are presented in three stages of development, so that the visitor forms a complete picture of their circle of life. Their presentation is based on the ecosystem that each species grows (beech, pine, fir, oak, meadow, etc.)

 

Wandering around a specially designed area, which simulates the real environment, visitors can gather information and get familiar with every mushroom.
