The environmental and historical museum features an expositive-interactive display describing the history, culture, flora, fauna and protection of the Karst.
The starting point of the visit is the room dedicated to the karstic lakes. The distribution and function of the swallow-holes of the lakes, the source of the waters feeding the lakes and the reasons why the level of the water is so variable are the issues that are touched upon.
Reproductions, panels and computers describe the changes that the Karst has undergone since Prehistoric times and the evolution of human dwelling from the time of the caves to the Bronze age castellieri.The visit continues among reproductions of the natural environments of the Reserve: barren karstic land, karstic woodland and various karstic phenomena.
The key environment is that of the karstic lake. In the museum its fauna and the ecological relationships between the various species are described.
The last section of the museum is dedicated to local history and to the marks left by human activity during the First World War, but also during quarry operations to extract stone, which was widely used already in Roman times to build and decorate buildings.
The simultaneous broadcast of two films showing the natural beauties of the reserve can be viewed in the video room.
