Simon Robič Society for Cave Research

Češminova 19, SI-1230 Domžale





Aleš Stražar, Curator









Founded in 1961, the Simon Robič Society for Cave Research opened Železna jama ('Iron Cave') to the public in 1963 and in the following years set up a permanent exhibition of caving objects in the Caver's Club. The memorial room, devoted to 19th-century biologist and speleologist Simon Robič, contains a caving collection, a geological collection, archaeological finds from the nearby Babja jama cave, the Franz Hohenwarth Collection of stalagmites and stalactites and a collection of fossils and rocks. Since 1992 it has also held a collection from the straw hat industry that characterised the Domžale region in the early 20th century, and parts of a B-24 bomber that crashed in the vicinity during the Second World War.
