Breginj Museum, a complex of two-story stone houses intertwined with corridors, is an architectural and ethnological monument.
Before the great 1976 earthquake Breginj was a precious, living memorial to the unique architecture of Beneška Slovenija.
The circular streets and the stone houses with their roofed galleries (known as »ganki«), connected to their stables and barns, stood in oval clusters. They were a witness to the remarkable cultural landscape and heritage of these parts.
Now, the sole remnant of the original layout is the old village centre with its museum and the St. Nicholas church and rectory; they are classified as national cultural monuments.
The museum is open on demand.
