A family doctor dr. Janez Šmid has created a collection of ethnological objects over his many years of service at Planina. Due to his interest in folk heritage which was deteriorating in front of his eyes, he started to collect things which belong to that area. The year 1974 especially stimulated him to do that when there was an earthquake in the area of Kozjansko and many took advantage of the people's distress to steal folk heritage from its original environment.
