The Kobarid Museum
The Kobarid Museum developed from a museum collection which was set up by the locals with professional assistance of Goriški muzej in 1990. It first operated within the frame of the Tourist Society of Kobarid. Five years later, in agreement with the Ministry of Culture of the Republic of Slovenia, the founders transferred the management to a non-profit company of limited liability which still manages the Museum. In the year 2011, the Kobarid Museum was put in the official register of Slovenian museums.
It was awarded for its activities the highest Slovenian award in the museum sphere – the Valvasor Prize. It was nominated for the European Museum of the Year Award (EMYA) and was awarded the Council of Europe Museum Prize.
Many notable persons have visited the Museum: from monarchs, three presidents of the EU Parliament, numerous presidents of states, prime ministers, ministers, presidents of various world associations, superiors of different churches, all to Nobel Prize winners.
Since its establishment the Museum has organized more than forty exhibitions both at home and abroad, of which a series of presentations of the European nations participating in the Kobarid Battle should be extra emphasized. Likewise, a number of exhibitions organized in European capitals (Vienna, Rome, Paris, Ljubljana, Zagreb) during the Slovenian EU presidency were met with wide response. There were also more than 200 different cultural events in the cycle of the so-called Museum Evenings.
