Alpine museum is open even in winter and on Sunday. Beside the permanent exhibition you can look at presentation of public tender about mountain shelters and, little hidden in the basement, story about WWI in the mountains. Main floor explains history of mountaineering and story of Slovenian alpinists on Mount Everest. You can, as before, admire Alpine flora and fauna or visit one wooden shelter in the museum and another, metal one near the main building. Museum has larger souvenir shop as before, toilettes and, it is not the best solution, just some drinks from a machine. Parking is still at the main entrance. Don’t forget to walk around the village and to the nearest peak or mountain hut.

This small museum provides an interesting perspective on the history of Slovenian alpine regions and mountaineering. The visit begins with a film on the Slovenian Mountains which takes about 20 minutes. The rest of the museum contained various exhibits of the flora and fauna of the alpine regions, and a detailed expose on mountain climbing and equipment over the years. There were some interesting displays here including a mountain hut where they simulated surviving a severe mountain storm. It felt quite treacherous in the dark. There was some old mountaineering equipment and history of the Slovenian mountaineering society. There were numerous stuffed animals including a brown bear that had given its hunter a good go before dying.
There are also various interactive displays which helps you get into the fun of the museum. There are 5 terminals where you have to answer questions on the topics of the museum and in the end you get a postcard printed off with stamps of your correct answers. A nice memento.

We really enjoyed visiting this museum which cost us 13€ to enter as a family of 2 adults and 3 teenagers. There was some interactive games which you played as you went round.

It was so interesting to read about the changes in mountaineering and climbing in Slovenia. Also the achievements of the Slovenians were on display.
The best bit was the opportunity to experience a mountain top thunder storm in a hut: so scary! Make sure you shut the door properly to get the process started. But what an experience!

The staff spoke little English but this was not a problem and the museum's displays were in Slovenian and in English. The building is modern and airy.

Also don't miss the opportunity to experience standing on the cliff edge of Triglav by walking through to the back on the ground floor and donning the 3D glasses. Amazing!

All in all a happy hour or so spent here and happily recommend to anyone with even the slightest interest in mountains.

Well signposted from main road too.
