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.

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

This is a charming little museum along in one of the villages along the upper valley and is worth stopping at if you are in the area. It's quite interesting as it does convey the real life experiences of the traditional alpine dairy farming families well and this is a way of life which has all but disappeared now. It... More
