Skofja Loka Things to Do: 150 reviews and 297 photos

Loka Castle houses one of the best ethnographic museum in the whole of Slovenia. The museum is made up of a number of collections that detail the towns history, culture, art, ethnology, archeological finds and natural history. It was founded in 1939 and today houses artifacts spread over the castles 23 rooms on 2 floors. The ground floor rooms feature artifacts from the town's foundings in 973 onwards as well as furniture, ceramics and medieval art. The second floor rooms chart more on the culture with costumes, trading and farming artifacts, archeological findings and nearby natural history. If you're visiting Skofja Loka and the caste, you cannot miss visiting this museum. More photos can be found in my travelogues.

Open: 9am-6pm Tues-Sun. Closed Mondays.
