The museum is located in the old dairy, about 50 meters from the main road. It is very small and compact, and we were the only guests there. 15-30 minutes are enough to get the general impression from the place, which is well kept.

Mostly old photos with Slovenian and English test, but lots of old cheese making and alpine living displays including the interior of an old chalet. I learned much more here than in a similiar museum in Zermatt.
