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.Put Oplen House Museum and other Srednja vas v Bohinju attractions into our Srednja vas v Bohinju trip maker tool, and watch your holiday take shape.

We felt very welcome. The lady that welcomed us said that she was not a guide, but gave us a grand tour anyway. We also learned a lot about culture, language and.... the fact that we needed a permit to paddleboard on the lake. The museum is not big, but gives a good idea of the way people lived and worked at the end of 1800/ beginning 1900.
Well maintained and restored farm buildings. They were not very tall in those days. Pleasant staff.
