The aim of setting up Malleshwaram's Wood Museum and Interpretation Centre was to change the public's view of wood. From a 780-year-old giant tree trunk to wooden tools, the display is completely dedicated to tracing the centrality of wood to civilizations. One section invites visitors to pick up slabs of woods from different trees to understand how dramatically different each wood weighs, whereas another section is dedicated to the variety of seeds. Detailed posters throughout the exhibit present trivia and facts about wood.
