Following a successful application for European funding for the restoration of monuments owned by municipalities in the period 2010–2012 (under call for applications Ref. ERDF/CS 2010–2012), a comprehensive restoration of the castle began at the end of April 2011. It followed project documentation drawn up by Aleš Hafner and was executed alongside a correlated revitalisation of content, which was carefully planned in the course of years of preparation. The conservation aspects of this comprehensive restoration were supervised by Alenka Železnik, while the day-/to-day operations were headed by Jože Drešar. The restoration of the castle included simultaneous archaeological and architectural research and revealed a number of remarkably important architectural elements, dating predominately to the 12th-through-16th centuries. They were conserved, repaired, and reconstructed based on material evidence, then used to enrich castle architecture and further our understanding of its architectural development.

The exhibition provides an insight into the building’s structural evolution, the research conducted there over the last fifty years, as well as the course of its comprehensive renovation and, in part, reconstruction of select building segments.
