The exhibition introduces an insight into various ways of everyday life in the past, when they interwoven strongly among each other, affected each other and thus gave unique character to Kamnik and the Kamnik region. The exhibition shows very contrasting ways of life, i.e. life of Kamnik bourgeoisie and seasonal life of herdsmen on Velika Planina.
The Kamnik town was founded due to economic, political and strategic-administrative needs. Visitors get familiar with Kamnik through its history and people. The exhibition shows citizens in their everyday life, during their public and economic activities, during their agitated social and club life, as well as their culture of living, their life-cycle ceremonies, such as baptising, confirmation, wedding and funeral.
Velika Planina in Kamnik Alps is the highest high-altitude pasture in Slovenia with more than a hundred herdsmen’s dwellings. The exhibition shows the dialog between the nature and the culture, between the past and the present. The objects form the Vlasto Kopač’s Collection introduce life and work of herdsmen during the season pasture. Visitors may learn about vessels and tolls for making butter and cheese (“trnič” is a special sort of cheese, known in this area), and handwrites for their decoration, wooden spoons and ladles, shepherd’s clothes, equipment for animals, house equipment – wooden locks, door handles (vice), lamps and products, made in their spare time or during the pasture, such as child’s toys, sundials or pipes in forms of dogs or roosters .
