Municipal museum and castle are the same attraction. Museum is in the castle. So, it is first attraction of the city. Visit museum for first impression and after visit parts of old mine and shops with laces.

The museum comes across as a lace museum but it also covers mercury mining and the war/political history of the area including the resistance movement. We never planned on doing it but it was a nice surprise. I would recommend it.

Hugh quality museum with great English explanations, particularly on mining history and lace making as it relates to war history etc. Really interesting regardless of your pre-existing interest in these topics. Trust me. I consider this one of the bargains on our trip! Also, great shop in the museum courtyard with an artisan making bobbin lace, with a focus on bobbin lace jewelry. Closes at 6pm, only an hr drive or bus ride from Ljubljana...highly recommend!!!!!

We visited Indrija with the hopes to see the mercury mine however time was not on our side. We did visit this museum and were enchanted. Excellent displays and lots of information. Very well organized museum. Don't miss the large cube of suspended mercury droplets!! Some of my favorite photos of the trip. At the entrance of the museum we were asked if we wanted to also see the mining cars as well as the giant waterwheel. A very friendly informative young man brought us to the other sites as they were a bit of a distance from the museum itself. DO NOT MISS the waterwheel!! Our guide was very helpful and it was very nice to experience seeing the town and it's history from one of the locals. You could tell he is very proud of his town's history and is happy to live in this charming little town. Definitely recommend!!
