The Alpine Dairy Farming Museum in Stara Fužina presents the traditional way of life on mountain pastures in its genuine environment through items, photographs and other documents. A visit to the museum helps you understand the meaning of herding and alpine dairy farming in Bohinj, as a way of life and coexistence with nature in an alpine environment. Alpine dairy farming has its roots in the 13th century, and cheese-making was the foundation of Bohinj farming throughout history. The museum, located in an abandoned village cheese-making facility, was opened in 1971 and then renovated in 1990. On display at the museum are the original cheese-making shop and the wooden interior of a shepherd’s hut from the Zajamniki mountain pasture, dating from 1849. Photographs show the cheese-making facilities and the process of cheese-making on mountain pastures and the transportation of the produce down into the valley.
