The Miklova Hiša

Miklova hiša ni le stavba, ampak prostor z zgodovinsko in kulturno vrednostjo v Ribnici.

The Miklova Hiša Library

The Miklova Hiša Library is Ribnica’s central library and the cultural, educational and social hub of the local community.

The library has a long history, which goes back to the 19th century, when the first Ribnica National Reading Room and Society was established in 1870. The reading room was housed in Cene’s house (owned by the Podboj family), which was the most famous inn in Ribnica at that time. At the reading room, people could read newspapers and books written in various European languages. It also hosted various reading get-togethers and dances for the reading club members. Due to lack of room, the library was relocated repeatedly over the years, until it received its permanent premises and its official name – the Miklova Hiša Library – in 1992.

The Miklova Hiša Gallery

Since its inception, the Miklova Hiša Gallery has developed a solid concept of gallery-related activities, which is based on the presentation and placement of contemporary artistic creativity within the region. Its focus is on the preservation and protection of artistic cultural heritage and raising the awareness of its values.

Another important part of the Gallery’s work is the study and documentation of local cultural heritage and education about the acceptance of visual culture and its interpretive diversity.
