The town itself and its immediate surroundings have plenty of attractions worth visiting that includes the Cerkljansko Museum, the Hotel Cerkno with its ski center and swimming pool, monuments and sites marking the World War II resistance movement, and the birth houses of Dr. Franc Močnik and Archbishop Sedej.

A memorial museum was opened in 1990 in the birth house of France Bevk in Zakojca on the centennial of the birth of Slovenia's most prolific writer and an important patriot. The ethnological exhibition on the ground floor preserves the original appearance of the writer's home, and the former attic houses a literary history exhibition. The house is also interesting because it illustrates the characteristic rural architecture of the region at the threshold of the 20th century.
