This a great little museum with a variety of displays. Historical, political, sporting, artistic, it's got something for everyone and very interesting. It's worth the walk up through town. The grounds and gardens are also worth a visit.

There is plenty to see in this lovely old castle and museum and it gives the visitor a real flavour of the history of this part of Slovenia. There are also regular visiting exhibitions, often of local modern artists.

After your walk through the town of Skoja Loka, it's a short up-hill walk to the castle and its museum. A large portion of the museum is dedicated to the history of the town. It is worth a visit. If you can arrange for a...More
