This tiny museum, showing the sanitary conditions during World War I, is housed in the former funeral hall next to the cemetery in Renče, where one of the four military cemeteries in the Municipality of Renče is also located. The front line was located in the immediate vicinity and the wounded soldiers were sent to the hospital in Renče. The collection presents five emphases in both Slovene and English languages that talk about the beginning of the war, Renče during World War I, refugees, the sanitary conditions in general and the hospital. Furthermore, some authentic objects are displayed and a nurse dressed in an Austro-Hungarian uniform. The collection also contains a substantial amount of photographic material.
