The most well preserved secular building is the 300-year-old Liznjekova house in the centre of Kranjska Gora. This was a rich landowner’s home and, at one time, it was also an inn. The wooden part of the house was built in the second half of the 17th century while the small, brick room beside was constructed in the 18th century, in the Baroque style. In its time the Liznjekova house was an example of the most advanced architecture in Slovenia. Its design was the prototype for other farmhouses with a cellar that served also as a barn, it had a brick ground floor with a wooden living room, a brick-built black kitchen, a small bedroom, broad hall, small room and another small bedroom off the hall and one wooden pillar above the entrance. The house retained its original architecture until the end of the 19th century. Since then, nothing has been changed apart from the ground floor windows and new walls which have been installed in the hall and the side entrance. In addition to the black kitchen and the old room layout, nowadays the building houses an ethnographic museum collection and a permanent exhibition of the life and work of Josip Vandot, the author of the popular children’s stories about Kekec.

This was one of the nicest small folk museums I've seen around the world. It gives a picture of how families lived when they had to be completely self sufficient. Growing, baking, weaving, woodworking and more, all on site. I was there last week, and the man in charge gave me an individual tour and was extremely helpful. For 2.5... More

We left visiting this museum in Kranjska Gora to the very last day of our holiday and were so happy not to have missed it. We were guided round by a local with excellent spoken English and given an English leaflet which explains the 17th century farm house. The rooms, content and layout were authentic.

It's much bigger on the inside, is a treasure trove of interesting local traditions and lifestyles. You learn a lot more when the owner gives you a tour.

I was the only person visiting this house/museum but the guide did not rush me around and was very interesting in telling the history of the house and it's family. Every room has been preserved as it was in 18c.The attic is particularly interesting with an assortment of wooden tools and a weaving loom. This is well worth visit.

This is a great little museum just minutes away from the centre of the town, the host is really interesting and it is a fascinating experience talking to him. The museum gives a great insight into the history of Kranjska Gora and the surrounding towns and villages with various exhibits and displays both in the house and adjacent barn. There... More

A great place to visit while in Kranjska Gora we went round this old house ,the Gentleman Guide was very informative ,he was on hand to answer any questions ,but also left us alone to browse .You felt as though you had stepped back in time as Most of the house had stood still for hundreds of years

Really interesting and worth a visit. This wee Museum packs in a lot from complete rooms, fully furnished, to a vast, eclectic collection of old farming equipment in the barn. My favourite was the "Black Kitchen" where food was (and still is) smoked. the smell was amazing and the tar blackened walls and ceiling, well, I have never before seen... More

We went to ski, but noticed this museum as we walked through the town. It is not advertised, and not very signed either, but it is truly excellent and well worth a visit. It is an old village house, lived in by a farming family, and has lovely painted chests and beds and other furnishings, all of which take you... More
