Special exhibitions:  A collection of African art collected by František Foit is the only collection of its kind in Slovenia.
When the new town was built in Velenje, the authorities decided to build a museum to preserve the town's cultural heritage.  The museum was located in the Velenje castle which was, as a result of war, in pretty dire state.  The first exhibition arranged in the museum was the Collection from Slovene coal mines, which was opened to the public in 1966.  Subsequently a model of a mine shaft was made for visitors to experience the mining environment.

The museum houses a total of eleven museum and gallery collections, including:
- relics of the mastodon,
- exhibition of African art collected by František Foit,
- exhibition "How Velenje has developed into a town",
- exhibition Šalek valley between the 10th and the 17th century,
- collection of baroque art from the church of St. Jurij v Štalah,
- exhibition Šalekša valley between 1941 - 1945,
- collection of modern Slovene art - Gorenje,
- the Lojze Perko Gallery,
- reconstruction of the old general store,
- reconstruction of the old pub and
- exhibition of works by sculptor Ciril Cesar.

Vzorčno mesto

If you are looking for knowledge that you believe you already have, than this is often the most you will ever find.
Pattern city is an ecosystem,opened to creative confrontation with the world of technological progress and socio- environmental changes. It is a place where different stakeholders from the city and the region cooperate in order to establish a sustainable and efficient strategy for social development.

People are naturally drawn to identifying patterns. We identified patters even in prehistoric times, when we recognised danger by listening to the sounds in the bushes. Today we identify patterns when we skip through the pages, full of letters and numbers, in order to give meaning without scrutinising them thourougly.
