The Apiculture Museum Krapje is an open-air museum, centred around an original octagonal apiary which dates from the late 19th century.It is complemented by various historic artefacts and documents that show the contours of beekeeping and honeymaking in the past.

The museum was established in 1997 by the beekeeper Drago Šalamun. After many years of collecting beekeeping exhibits, he acquired the apiary in 1996. The apiary has a skylight for ventilation and lighting and contains 84 hives, joined in units of 6 hives each, that is the old NASIER System. It was made by joiner master Pok from Tišina for the landowner and teacher Evgen Antauer from Tropovec. In 1945 it was bought by farmer Alojz Šeruga. Drago Šalamun bought it in a bad state, renovated it and established a museum. After his death his wife Marta inherited it. The museum is now managed by Jožef and Dragica Tigeli.
