The impression of a city changes once you know its history. The beauty of an area increases once you know its mysteries. The beer has a fuller taste once you respect its rich heritage. Your health becomes a priority once you get introduced to its ancient traditions. Museum collections and exhibitions create new dimensions to your experience #myLaško.
The former market granary on the Aškerc Trg square is a place for discovering past and present of Laško and its surroundings. The permanent Laško – A Trip through Time exhibition presents the town’s historical development from prehistoric times up until the present day, the Brewery Industry and Spa Tourism exhibition explores the long-lasting brewing and thermal spa traditions in Laško and Rimske Toplice. Finally, the Geology of the Laško Area exhibition focusses on the rich natural heritage, explains the historic economic development and inspires further countryside visits. The occasional thematic, painting and photographic exhibitions enrich the town’s cultural life.
The museum was founded in 1907. Its original collection included Roman tombstones, fine ceramics from Roman and pre-Roman area and collections of decorative watches, pottery and antique furniture. With time, the museum became the principal guardian of local cultural and natural heritage.
The museum visit is included in various guided tour programmes and is also open to individual visitors.
