The Renaissance Hall on the first floor has a wooden ceiling and two inlaid wooden portals, the largest of which bears the date 1638. The hall is used for cultural events and wedding ceremonies.

The Town Hall was renovated in 1964-1966 and the rebuilding work uncovered some precious architectural elements. In 1965 Old Slavic graves from the 9th and 10th centuries and a ritual fireplace from the same period were discovered in the ground floor hall of the Renaissance section and are now presented authentically under glass.

In 1966 a gallery was opened in the ground floor and first floor areas of the Town Hall to display a collection of over 50 small sculptures and prints by Lojze Dolinar (1893-1970), which had been donated to the Municipality of Kranj by the artist himself.

Other rooms on the ground floor are also used for occasional gallery and thematic museum exhibitions.

The remaining rooms on the first floor present part of the museum's rich holdings from the fields of archaeology, art and cultural history. The entire second floor of the Town Hall is occupied by the ethnological collection Folk Art in Gorenjska, opened in 1980 and comprising painted and carved furniture, tools, festive dresses and pottery. Complete sections illustrate the arrangement of settlements, buildings, interior furnishings, objects used for feasts and objects for everyday use.
