This weekend, taking advantage of my visit to the XXIV fair of the furniture of Galicia, I wanted to also know the MOME (Museo do moble e da madeira / Museum of furniture and wood) of A Estrada, the Museum opened in March of this year, usually opens its doors only from Monday to Friday, but these days extends its hours, coinciding with the celebration of the fair and you can visit on weekends between 11 and 14 h.
It’s a didactic, multifunctional space, it is not a Museum very large, but in principle that does not seem to be a problem for their operation, because nor intended to be only a place of exhibition, but rather the idea is an interactive space for cultural dissemination, which will soon begin to organize workshops and conferences, to not be confined to visits, I’ve already traveled its facilities, so I can tell you some things that you can find there.
In the Museum are made a route very didactic learning things about the wood from collection and treatment, up to the manufacture of the furniture and the evolution of the same design, begins the journey in an audio-visual room which presents a short film that highlights the importance of the wood has since always in our lives.
Then went to visit the exhibits of the Museum, one of the things that I’ve liked more can see it in the photo under these lines is a table in which there are signs of wood that not only we can see, but also touch and manipulate, so that in addition to color differences, we can appreciate differences in density, texture and other properties, this type of detail is based on the interactivity of the Museum.
Fixed and mobile walls, there are murals in explaining aspects related to wood, photographs accompanied by text, which can be for example the processes of obtaining and wood treatment, as I mentioned, is not just an exhibition, but a space to learn, with information presented by various routes.
In terms of the detail of the Mobile walls, It is important to tell that the spaces in the Museum have been divided with panels that can be changed in the future location, thus multiplies the local functionality, it has done so thinking of the future holding of conferences or workshops, that may require a different distribution.
Something to which importance is attached in the contents of the Museum is to respect environmental, that reference is made to the great harm that fires each year in forests and the impact this has on the wood industry in particular and society in general, in Galicia each summer arden many hectares of forest, as a result of arson, which seems that you there is end.
Also refers to the manufacture of the paper starting from the wood, and the importance of recycling, recalling that it is necessary to separate waste, so that the work of recycling becomes possible, it is a mode of seeking to encourage responsible behavior in us citizens and sensitize the visitors with the problems arising from the accumulation of waste and pollution.
Then we have the part of geared exposure to the furniture, parts of various styles, all of them are made of wood, shows us the contrast in the evolution of the design of furniture, including chairs, from some very simple, passing by each other very decorated old of ago some years, until the now return to the simplicity of the principle, although changing shapes and color.
Some of the pieces are lent or donated by manufacturers in the area, the furniture industry is in A Estrada one of the most important, why does because time was thinking in a museum like this, showing the evolution of the sector and related activities, which may be of interest to inhabitants of the area and also from outside can be arranged at the.
To my found me interesting, maybe not everyone enjoy the visit, but yes decoration enthusiasts or interested in the industry of the wood and the furniture, In addition found me great for school visits, Olalla y Lucia, responsible for the Museum, commented me that they have already had some and with very good results, it will have to be aware when they begin to organize workshops and conferences, because we are sure that there will be several attractions.
