The Inter-municipal Museum Kamnik is an intersection point, joining archaeological, art-historical, historical and ethnological cultural heritage over the territories of the municipalities of Kamnik, Domžale, Komenda, Lukovica, Mengeš, Moravče and Trzin. It operates in the central Slovene region, where history, art and museum traditions have left their significant footprints. Kamnik as a town has a profuse history, as its citizens were first mentioned in the oldest preserved document in 1229. This makes Kamnik one of the oldest towns in Kranjska (Carniola) region. For centuries the town was the centre of administrative, legal, cultural and economic development of the Kamnik region.
By collecting, preserving, documenting, understanding, researching and introducing the regional diversity of cultures and people’s lives, marked by the millennial history, the Inter-municipal Museum Kamnik enables visitors to experience the value of the preserved cultural heritage in their own way. With its collections, documentation, exhibitions and performances, the museum stimulates a positive attitude towards our own cultural heritage, which originates from a rich tradition and history of the historically included area. With its openness and accessibility, its information and interpretation, the museum is an indispensable source of knowledge of the past and of understanding the present in the central Slovene region.
