Posavje Museum

Posavski muzej Brežice

The Posavje Museum of Brežice is situated in a castle originally designed as a camp-type fort for protection against the Turks and as a strategic support to the Vojna Krajina (the military frontier at the time of the Turkish incursions) in the 16th century. 

The Knight’s Hall, suitable for hosting prestigious events, is covered in Baroque frescos. The Archaeological Collection presents the settlement of the Posavje region from the Early Stone Age to the first arrival of the Slavs, the Ethnological Collection presents lives and customs of predominantly peasant inhabitants of the Posavje region from the end of the 18th century to the beginning of the 20th century, and the Art History Collection includes paintings adorning the imperial stair case and castle chapel; religious oil paintings; wooden small sculptures of saints; and a collection of the noble family Moscon. The New History Collection presents disputes between the Slovenian and German nobility; the exile of the inhabitants of the Posavje and Obsotelje regions; and the revolt against the German occupation. Also put on display are two exhibitions called “Rebellion” and “Citizenship”, and a memorial exhibition of works of Franjo Stiplovšek, a painter and graphic artist.
