In Murska Sobota Castle, we are setting up a new permanent exhibition for you, People along the Mura, which will replace the permanent exhibition from 1997. The content of the new exhibition will cover the entire area of Pomurje, we will present the excellent material we have acquired in the last two decades and we will add topics that may have been neglected so far. There will also be more content for children.
During the transition period, the old and the new exhibition are intertwined, and due to renovation works, individual parts of the exhibition are occasionally closed to visitors. We ask for your understanding and look forward to your visit.
People along the Mura
The permanent exhibition presents Pomurje with its natural resources and its people through cultural and historical areas from settlement to the present day. Carriers of different cultures, social classes, political and economic movements, Celts, Romans, Slavs, Slovenes, Hungarians, Germans, Turks, Roma, Catholics, Protestants, Jews, all are trapped in the museum's collection with a piece of their lives.
