Žiri Museum

Get into shoes for new discoveries

The Žiri Museum truly has a unique position in Slovenia. The town of Žiri is located at the meeting point of three Slovenian regions – Gorenjska, Notranjska and Primorska. The Old School, which houses the Žiri Museum, stands right next to the crossroads of the roads that lead to these three regions – Loka Road (which continues as Jobst Road and Old Žiri Road), Logatec Road and Idrija Road.

The following permanent exhibitions are on display:

  • Žiri and Its People through Time – exhibition on the history of the town and local residents.
  • “There is nothing better in this world than our shoemaker’s profession …” – exhibition on shoemaking in Žiri and the Alpina footwear factory.
  • Welcome, Fortress Lovers! – exhibition on the heritage of the Rapallo border.
  • Žiri’s Painters – exhibition of works by the Žiri artists.
