Founded in 1951,
is based in the castle situated in the old part
of Metlika. The museum stores the movable cultural heritage of Bela Krajina.
The geographically, ethnically and culturally
specific land that lies between the Kolpa river and Gorjanci hills has
a dynamic history which is, in many ways, different from the history of
the rest of Slovenia. This is the topic of the film "Images of Bela Krajina",
which forms an introduction to the permanent display at Metlika Castle.
Consisting of nomerous objects, partly spatial representations and pictorial
and documentary material, the collection presents local lifestyles from
prehistory to the mid 20th century.
