We suggest history and art lovers a visit to the Municipal Museum at Gewerkenegg Castle in Idrija which warmly welcomes all visitors.

The renovated castle dating back to the 16th century offers visitors the permanent exhibition Five Centuries of the Mercury Mine and the Town of Idrija which offers a historical and technological presentation of mining, follows the development of the town and its people connected with the mine. For the work done and for this very exhibition the museum was awarded the prestigious Luigi Micheletti foundation award as the best European museum of technological and industrial heritage.
The permanent exhibition Idrija Lace – A History Written in Thread  tells the story of hand-made Idrija Lace and its makers – lacemakers who have been supporting family budgets throughout the centuries. The most beautiful pieces of lace and products with lace show the development of the lace from the past into the present time when Idrija Lace is becoming an important element in famous designers' creations shown on catwalks.
