Art Museum · History Museum
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...  more »
  • Good accessability (or with car, or by foot from center). Nice restoration. Sometimes hosts concerts. Nice museum inside. They also have a mamuth fossil.  more »
  • Nice place with a lot to see in galleries. Guided tour approx. takes 2 hours. Come well before closing time 6 pm to visit garden as well. Castle overlooks the Velenje city, pleasing views.
  • Positively surprised, really nice tour. Great guide and very interesting exhibition.
