The historical collection
The historical collection is one of the youngest of museum collections at first glance, as the first 168 objects were only recorded in the inventory book in 2008. The objects were a part of the Ethnological collection before that as well as the collections of Idrija Municipal Museum and Cerkno Museum, while the Numismatic collection was another one excluded from the historical collection in 2007. There are over 1,700 objects included in the collection. A variety of material includes items related to the operation of various societies, organisations and institutions in the Idrija and Cerkno regions, material from the fields of education, sport and health, various items of memorabilia and partly personal items, transport and communication means, weapons, money, etc.
