There are hand painted plants, replicas of Greek and medieval planes, and the model of the water driven news transmittor designed by Leonardo da Vinc, and a bird collection of 10 birds.
Various methods of the usage of wood
In the second room we can see the relics of the instruction and the student life of the university settled in Sopron. Objective relics of the forestry experiment station (established in Selmecbánya in 1898) and the National Forestry Union are also exhibited (documents and appliences).

The third room deals with the topic of forestry surveying. The carefully designed levels, theodolites and other measuring instruments represent the work to be carried out by the use of them.

The next two rooms deals with the questions of forestry protection. By the demonstrated instruments all forestry activities can be carried out. (From tree planting to insecticides.) Some of the parasites are displayed in our insect collections.
