Planica Museum

Nordic Centre Planica 2016 pavilion and ski flying hills.jpg

The Planica Museum is dedicated to the history of ski jumping and flying in Planica, an alpine valley in northwestern Slovenia. Historically, this valley has been one of the prime sites for the development of ski flying as a sports discipline of its own, and consequently, the museum also presents the wider history of ski jumping as such. Nevertheless, its main focus is to present and develop both the cultural as well as the technical heritage of almost a century of ski jumping in Planica.

Set in a newly constructed pavilion as a part of the Nordic skiing complex called the Nordic Centre Planica, the museum opened its doors in 2016. The exhibition was collected and set up by Iztok Durjava from the Slovene Sports Museum which is also managed by the Institute of Sports of the Republic of Slovenia Planica.

Recent motorway building works have uncovered an archaeologically rich region, and archaeological excavations and research work are still under way at different sites. The office has its quarters, conservation and restoration workshop and depots in Grm Castle (16th – 18th Century) with stucco ceiling decoration and wall paintings in the tower room.
