The Bela krajina Museum in Metlika has been opened since 1951 and is located in the Metlika Castle. The permanent exhibition showcases (with numerous objects, partial ambient installations, pictorial and documentary material) the people’s lives from prehistory to the middle of the 20th century. The introduction into the permanent exhibition starts with a 15-minute film about Bela krajina. After viewing the collection, you can also see the viticultural collection and get to know the Bela krajina viticultural equipment of the last two hundred years. The lapidarium under the arcades is also an interesting sight. The castle also features the Gangl Exhibition Area intended for temporary exhibitions, a wedding hall, a castle basement and TIC. The Bela krajina Museum in Metlika is also managing the Kambič Gallery, the Semič Local Museum Collections, the Črnomelj City Museum Collections and the memorial Oton Župančič collections in Vinica.
