Permanent Exhibition of Slovenian History

Ljubljana Castle

Permanent exhibition

The exhibition takes visitors from prehistory to the present in a simple and understandable fashion.

It presents information on different levels and showcases original items, replicas, interactive content and multimedia presentations, which are also adapted for children and people with special needs. The location for the exhibition is perfect, as Jože Plečnik (1872-1952) said that the Ljubljana Castle is the Slovenian Acropolis.

The exhibition can also be viewed with the aid of the audioguide system through the Ljubljana Castle.

The exhibition is divided into six parts along the historical timeline: prehistory and the Roman period, the Middle and the Early Modern Ages, the 19th century and WWI, the Kingdom of Yugoslavia and WWII, the socialist Yugoslavia and the independent Slovenia.

It presents the societies of the different periods, the state formations, the political, social and economic circumstances, migrations, transport, culture, architecture and the everyday life.

Guided tour of the exhibition

Guided tour of the exhibition is possible by prior arrangement. Because the space is somewhat limiting, the maximum number of persons per group is 20. In the case of a larger group we recommend to our guests a combination of the guided tour with other programs we offer.
