Mostly old photos with Slovenian and English test, but lots of old cheese making and alpine living displays including the interior of an old chalet. I learned much more here than in a similiar museum in Zermatt.

We ducked in here partly out of interest and partly to avoid a sudden shower. It's only small, but gives a great insight into a disappearing way of life.

I was attracted to the museum because of my interest in dairy farming, but it's actually more of a look into the lives of the local villagers. There are exhibits of how products such as yogurt and cheeses are made in the homes and photos of the farmers at their work and in their homes. One room is an actual... More

This little local museum in Stara Fuzina documents alpine dairy production in the Bohinj area with plenty of implements and photos. The great surprise is how recently the very traditional hand-made, hand-carried cheese making tradition in alpine pastures still subsisted. There is still at least one cheese maker present at 1400m but nothing like the large numbers as late as... More

This is a very interesting place that takes about 10 minutes of your time but it is well worth a visit. Your Bohinj guest card should get you a discount rate . Some great artefacts on display.

The Alpine Dairy Museum in Stara Fužina has a charming display of alpine dairy farming in the Bohinj Valley. There are four rooms /sections including a herder's cottage that looks like it could have been Heidi's grandfather's if he were Slovenian! The old photos and equipment are fascinating. Check out the butter molds and hand-carved crocks.. Plansarski Muzej, 181 Stara... More

This small museum gives a fascinating insight into the farming history of the area. A great pity that the English captions to photos are in MUCH smaller text than the Slovenian ones and (being black text on brown paper) really hard to read where they are not directly illuminated by spotlights
