Laško Museum - Introduction

In the heart of the old town centre and contiguous to the church of St Martin and the library, on Aškerc Square no.5, the old granary has been restored to house the Laško Museum now.

Encouraged by Karl Valentinič, the humanist and natural scientist of Laško, the museum was established under the cover of the Beautification Committee in 1907, which was in charge of cultural and artistic happening of the time.

The original collection, which used to afford few fragments of Roman tombstones, pieces of ceramics from the Roman and Pre-Roman ages as well as some skilfully designed clocks, dishes and antique furniture, was kept by Karl Valentinič's vigilant eye and assisted by ambitious collecting work of the citizens of Laško and its surroundings, and soon overgrew its initial extent to become a rich contemporary collection of cultural and natural heritage of the town.


Few principals and curators of the museum used to manage it through its long history of who each denoted it in his own way in a particular period of time. Its primar assignment, however, to collect, to preserve and to present the historical, culturally and artistically historical as well as the ethnological material about Laško and its surroundings often used to be supplemented by periodical exhibitions of paintings of Slovene most prominent artists.


The two permanent exhibitions thus present only a humble part of an extensive inventory of natural and cultural heritage within the Museum of Laško. Beside, very rich archives, phototeque and library promise an inexhaustible source of materials to thematic exhibitions at times.


Three exhibitions – Laško in the Course of Time, Beer-brewing and Spa Tourism and The Geology of Laško and Laško are permanently opened to the visitors as well as the temporal exhibition....
