Domžale Straw Hat Museum

Just how exciting can a museum of straw hats really be? As it turns out, much more than you might expect. This tiny museum is not just an exhibition about making straw hats with a few samples on display. Rather, it offers a glimpse into the glory days of the Slovenian town of Domžale.

Domžale was once a thriving textile hub, known far and wide for its straw hat production. And this was no small industry: Before the Second World War, it was customary in the West to wear hats when outdoors, and straw hats were preferred in hot weather or while working.
