The museum collection in the village of Avšje is situated in the Jug family’s house (“Pri Jugovih”), which can be reached by going along the road leading from Kanal towards Kal nad Kanalom. There you can see items from World War I and II, which were collected by a local man in the vicinity of the house and on the Banjščice Plateau, in Cerkno, Idrija, Bovec and elsewhere. Apart from the characteristic items such as bombs, grenades, guns, bayonets, first aid kits, visitors can also see antique telephones and five military uniforms, which belonged to soldiers from different countries.
In the “Pri Jugovih” house you can see an old fireplace, which is, to a certain degree, different from the one in the Lukčeva hiša House. Apart from the fireplace itself, many fireplace kits, kitchen fittings and different ethnological objects are also exhibited.
