HOUSE OF MINERALS

Velenje Museum has several museum units in the area of the Šalek Valley. One of them is the House of Minerals in Old Velenje, which has been managed by the museum since 2011. Visitors to the House of Minerals can see the rich collection of minerals from Slovenia and around the world, assembled by private collector Jože Rihtar. The peculiarity of the collection is surely the unique piece of amber that was found in the Velenje Coal Mine in 2008.
