Oplen House 2015.jpg

Oplen House is a traditional early 20th-century Bohinj farmhouse made of wood and stone, renovated in period style with authentic furnishings to serve as a museum of domestic culture of the people living in the valleys around Bohinj Lake. The house was renovated by donations from locals, the Institute for the Protection of Cultural Heritage of Slovenia and furnished in collaboration with the Gorenjska Museum, which also contributed some of the exhibits. The museum opened to the public in 1991, and has been managed since 1997 by the Gorenjska Museum.

Oplen House is a characteristic Bohinj stretched-out farmhouse in which the living quarters and farm buildings are combined under one roof. In the living quarters there is an open hearth kitchen in working condition, a hiša which functions as the central living room, and a kamra ("small room") for farm workers who are too old to work. In the attic is an ispa, where crops, tools and clothes were kept. The farm buildings comprise a stable, barn, and litter store, where agricultural implements are exhibited. As in the past, further agricultural implements and accessories are kept in the barn.
