Idrija miner’s house was built in the second half of the 18th century. It’s nestled on the slope facing the town below.

The house construction – except for the stone foundation, built basement, kitchens and vestibules – is made of wood. The outside walls are made of wooden boards, plastered and whitewashed. The roof is covered with fir boards, locally named ‘šinklni’. The height, the white facade and numerous little windows make it appear a mighty building. In the past, more than looking mighty, it aimed to host as many people as possible: the owner with his family and at least one or two tenant families. 

Up till today the house has retained the main features of the typical Idrija architecture of the past. The ground floor apartment is furnished and takes visitors back to the first half of the 20th century. We suggest visiting the interior of the house that is only possible if accompanied by a guide from the Municipal Museum.
