History Museum · Hidden Gem · Specialty Museum
The shingle covered house is a typical Bohinj homestead. The rooms still contain the original equipment and furniture, representing an interesting portrayal of the way of life in Bohinj in the beginning of the 20th century. Oplen House is a typical farmhouse which was built as a longhouse with living and farm rooms in the same structure, featuring an authentic black kitchen (one of the few houses where fire can still be lit in the fireplace in this chimney-less kitchen), hiša (today’s living room) with bogkov kot (a corner with a cross), kamra (chamber), ispa (attic), a barn, and various original farm tools and equipment.
