The Museum of Alpine Dairy Farming is situated in Stara Fuzina, which is a typical alpine village with preserved old farm houses. The museum was opened in 1971 and reorganized in the year 1990. The museum is arranged in the abandoned village cheese dairy, which was built in 1883 and where were producing cheese until 1967. The museum of dairy farming and cheese making is shown in four rooms.
In the first room we can see the alpine dairy hut with furnishing from the alpine pasture Zajamniki and originates from the year 1849.
In the second room we can see the original cheese dairy with large built in rennet vats and a press for forming cheese loaves. There are exhibited the original things of the interior furnishings of cheese dairies as are milk bowls, butter churns, cheese making utensils and other. In the show case we can see a large backpack with the equipment of alpine dairymen and herdsmen they took up to the monuntain pastures.
At the entrance to museum are shown a print with house signs used by farmers to identify their crockery and equipment, a cartographic presentation of the most ancient references to alpine pastures and a portrait painting of the parish priest Janez Mesar. Janez Mesar stimulated the cultural and economic revival of Bohinj.
In the third room we can see photographs which show settlements and alpine dairy huts at Bohinj.
In the fourth room we can see the oldest depiction of the Triglav, an alpine herdsman of Bohinj and the alpine pasture of Velo polje. There are shown portraits of old dairymen and herdsmen, their working day, leisure, food and other. We can also see a traditional tourist event named Cow Ball of Bohinj.
