Where else more appropriate could the Iron Forging Museum be located than in the village of Kropa, the cradle of Slovene iron forging? A centuries-old tradition comes together in the mighty Klinar House which is situated in the middle of the square and was the first technical museum in Slovenia. The history of iron forging comes alive with the help of several models which will be set in motion just for you.

The Iron Forging Museum in Kropa demonstrates the entire iron working process: from iron ore to a spike. In addition to the technical and historical presentation of manual iron forging, the museum also portrays how life used to be in Kropa and its surrounds. The museum features an exhibition of wrought-iron creations made by the iron-forging master, Joža Bertoncelj, a native of Kropa.
