Permanent exhibition about history of Gradež

In 2006 a permanent exhibition about the history of Gradež has been opened in the room next to the drying house. The exhibited materials originate partly from the research conducted by the Slovene Ethnographic Museum in 1948. The first thing you notice upon entering is a picture of a Slovene composer Marij Kogoj who was married to a woman from Gradež and spent many summers in the village. Another Slovene composer Jakob Jež, who lives nearby, spent 15 years working on the musical legacy of Marij Kogoj. The picture next to that of Kogoj is a picture of Kogoj’s house. On it, a pool is visible that used to provide drinking water for cattle; in the winter, however, it was a convenient skate rink for children. There is also a series of old photographs, showing, among other, Mr. Bajde at manufacturing an osovnik, a piece of equipment for scything (his product is now hanged on the roof beam). One photograph shows an image of a bird with a twig on a 200-year-old house with a wine cellar that has now been renovated. There are also pictures of typical granaries; one of them is Andolškova, a wooden granary that is currently being renovated. In the corner, there is an old pair of skis, an old balance, and an old set of dishes that were used for preparing meals in a house oven. You can also read a transcription of interviews with villagers, carried out in 1948.
