The Slovenian Mountaineering Museum houses a rich collection of historical artifacts and an extensive specialist library. It reminds visitors of the importance of mountaineering in Slovenia with a variety of photographic and archival materials. You can see the permanent exhibition, learn about the historical development of mountaineering in Slovenia and choose from a variety of souvenirs and books on mountaineering in the shop. An introductory film and eleven different sections with challenges, tests, and tasks add variety to the experience. If you collect all the stamps along the way, there’s a prize waiting for you at the end.

The museum regularly organizes various temporary exhibitions, events, and activities. It also acts as an information point for the Triglav National Park, where you can get all the information you need about weather conditions in the mountains, open lodges, guides, and mountain trails.

The first records of the establishment of the Mountaineering Museum date back to 1901. The Triglav Museum collection, which was accumulated in Mojstrana until 1984, was managed by the Dovje Mojstrana Mountain Association. It was not until 1997 that the collection became part of the “Gornjesavski museum Jesenice”, and the independent museum began to take on its modern form only ten years later. The inauguration ceremony took place in 2010.

All guests of Reset Apartments can benefit from a 20% discount on tickets.
