Vladimir Primec, owner

Ralo Open Air Museum was founded in 1998 by Vladimir Primec after collecting ethnological exhibits – farming tools and machinery – for several years. It is named after a ralo ("ard"), a hook-shaped branch whose sharpened end was used to loosen and break up the soil. It is located in the vine growing and farming region of Slovenske Gorice in Prlekija in the village Ralo.

The museum is located in the open air on the owner's farm. Over 300 farming machines and tools (including manual and engine-driven threshing machines, horse-drawn mowers, sprayers, and ploughs) are exhibited including a rich collection of farming tools of all kinds. A special curiosity is the open fireplace kitchen with kitchen utensils from 60 years ago. The kitchen is still in use for drying meat and sausages. Specialities of the Ralo Open Air Museum are home-made seasonal delicacies, for instance, spring water and home-made bread with zaseka or minced lard.
