In the last 15 years museum try to present to the public ex cultural image of inhabitants in Kočevska region. In this way they want to introduce to the people the region history, which was not long ago in out cultural awareness presented in very small amount or even concealed.
That is why museum made several notable exhibitions. Some of them were presented in many small towns in Slovenia and also in foreign countries.

More and more visitors have been attracting employees to start with new work forms, which tend to more active and connected co-operation with visitors of all generations. Special attention is made on the youngest visitors.

With this actions in museum want to educate future regular visitors of museum events and also spread interest and knowledge about cultural heritage. Many of them become even museum partners, collectors of heritage things.
