When the new town was built in Velenje, the authorities decided to build a museum to preserve the town’s cultural heritage. The museum was located in the Velenje castle which was, as a result of war, in pretty dire state. The first exhibition arranged in the museum was the Collection from Slovene coal mines, which was opened to the public in 1966. Subsequently a model of a mine shaft was made for visitors to experience the mining environment.

  • Worth a visit, looks like a fairy tale castle, over 700 years old and still beautiful. Inside the courtyard there is a great area to sit and have a drink of beer or soft drinks, no coffee available...
