Dezela kozolcev Sentrupert (The Land of Hayracks) is the first open-air museum of hayracks in the world. It consists of 19 different drying structures originating from the Mirna Valley.

Hayracks present a centuries-long achievement of agricultural and livestock activities on country, castle and monastic agricultural estates. They reflect an extraordinary sense of using natural materials and mastery of carpenter’s tradition. The open-air museum consists of all six existing types of hayracks in the Slovenian ethnic territory: hree single (single, single cloaked, single stretched) and three double hayracks (low, “goat” hayrack, linked hayrack – “toplar”).

The museum covers an area of 2.5 ha and comprises 1 km of paths suitable for walks. The oldest hayrack in the museum is called »Luka’s toplar« dating back to 1795, which is also one of the world’s oldest preserved double hayracks.

The Land of Hayracks offers independent and guided tours, trainings on the manufacture of hayracks and protection and conservation of wooden architectural heritage, access to technical literature on hayracks and wooden architectural heritage, educational workshops from the fields of carpentry, joinery, roofing, stonemasonry, blacksmithing and other crafts important for architecture, and workshops on skills and general knowledge, events with presentations of typical farm work and chores, creative children’s play equipment made of wood, place to be rented out for social, cultural and business meetings, car park for cars and caravan travellers, environment for pleasant socialising and walks among the hayracks, special wedding ceremony, teambuildings, theme days and festivals.
