Get an insight into the life of herdsmen in the Bohinj's pastures in an authentic environment.
This museum in Stara Fužina is located in a former village cheese making facility. In 1883 a cheese making plant was built in Stara Fužina in Bohinj, where cheese was produced until as late as 1967.
On display at the museum is the original cheese making shop along with original cheese making tools, cheese vats and accessories, as well as objects used by the shepherds in their work in the mountain pastures. You can also see a wooden interior of a shepherd’s hut from the Zajamniki settlement, dating from 1849.
