The young forester A. Valavičius and experienced specialist S. Stankevičius from Druskininkai decided to establish a place where they could exhibit various things related to forests and wood. The museum was founded in 1972 and was called ‘Girios Aidas’. The museum consisted of four sections (Oak, Birch, Fir and Pine) with the exposition of wood artworks and the compositions called ‘Forest Birds’ and ‘Forest Animals’. Today the museum is extended. Apart from the above mentioned compositions, the museum exhibits carving artworks and organises various folk art displays, conferences and seminars.

- I have visited the musuem many,many times since the early 70s and i have always felt very safe and at home there.The musuem recalls very fond childhood memories of mine.Both of my children have visited (2 and 8 yrs)and i have also visited with loved ones now sadly no longer with us.I have many photos of several generations of my family taken outside the musuem.The first thought that came into my head when the flood unfolded was of the Witches Museum (and the liver and onion in the Wellington !)Somehow you instinctively knew that despite all the horror that transpired that fateful day the musuem would survive whatever was thrown at it.My heartfelt thoughts are with you and you are to be commended and deeply admired for the work you have obviously put in ,not just for the influx of visitors for this year but for many years to come and many years that have already passed .Thankyou.
