Menačenk Home is an important site of the Domžale cultural heritage since it preserves and presents the town’s past resting on crafts tradition. The house with its local name "Pr’ Menačn’k” was built at the turn of the 19th to the 20th century as a home and tailor’s workshop of the Ahčin family.
The architectural design of the house – a corner shaped house in which the living room and the agricultural building are jointly linked – is rather unusual in the area of Domžale where the Gorenjska type of house prevails. With its antique items and furniture, the house is an authentic presentation of the old building and the life of a farmer’s and craftsman’s family.
Menačenk Home has been refurbished and rearranged. The living space houses an ethnographic collection and the agricultural part provides exhibition rooms for fine arts and museum exhibitions. The attic, currently under renovation, will offer room for a permanent display of France Ahčin’s sculptures and other events.
The programme of activities in Menačenk Home rounds up diverse events organised by the Franc Bernik Domžale Cultural Centre. It has a well-developed concept founded on local and national cultural and historical heritage. Three major content-related events are organised monthly: an exposition, a Folk Heritage Evening in Words and Songs and a Creative Family Workshop on Saturdays.
The programme is intended for all generations since it helps us recall the past, preserve and present the folk heritage and art, as well as spread knowledge of different heritage forms of the local community; its purpose is also to teach and foster creativity. Young participants are offered a teaching programme in which they learn of their ancestors’ life through stories and compare it with the present. This enables them to develop an awareness of belonging to the national and local environment and tradition.
You are cordially invited to visit Menačenk Home offering the cosiness of a real, warm home where past and present live side by side.
