The Tomaž Godec Museum was founded in an erstwhile tannery in Bohinjska Bistrica 1979 within the former home of athlete, mountaineer, and progressive politician Tomaž Godec (1905–1942), a vigorous champion of tourism development in Bohinj and activist who was executed during World War II. The Gorenjska Museum took over the management of the collections in 1997 and has reconceptualised the displays.

In 2015 the top floor reopened with the permanent exhibitions on the First and Second World War. Over the next months the exhibitions on the archaeology of Bohinj, the leather manufacture, and Tomaž Godec will reopen for visitors, followed by the exhibitions on the rich cultural history of Bohinj (such as apiculture, vernacular architecture, iron-making). The museum also organises temporary art or thematic exhibitions and workshops.
