Ljutomer Trotter Museum 2014 01.jpg

Opened in 2012, the Ljutomer Trotter Museum is dedicated to the history and development of harness racing and to the ljutomerski kasač (Ljutomer trotter) thoroughbred, a horse breed of oriental origin dating back to the 18th century. In 1875, the Ljutomer Trotter Club was established, which makes it one of the oldest in Europe. The museum is situated within the club's premises, in the vicinity of the stables and racecourses. The permanent exhibition was prepared in collaboration with the Ptuj Regional Museum.

The museum collection was acquired from 43 local horse-breeding families. It includes an old hand-made racing cart from 1899, trophies and awards, as well as documentary material selected from over 3,000 collected photographs and 140 museum artefacts (in collaboration with the Historical Archives Ptuj). Children can enjoy Jona's Corner, with a short film featuring a playful mare.
