The Gorenjska Museum was headquartered in Khislstein until 2008, when the owner of the manor, the Municipality of Kranj, began renovations with the help of European funding. A permanent exhibition, Beautiful Gorenjska, is shown in the renovated area of the castle, which leads visitors through major milestones of life in the Gorenjska region, from the early Middle Ages to today. The exhibition begins by showing characteristics of the Gorenjska region and leads to the time of the arrival of the Slovenes. It teaches about life in castles and the hardships faced by the rural population. It shows an image of old Kranj and how people used to travel and transport goods. The focal point of the exhibition is the 19th century, from which exceptional individuals of the Gorenjska region who greatly contributed to the shaping of Slovenian national consciousness and identity are presented in a sort of shrine.
