National Museum of Slovenia is the oldest and the largest museum institutions in Slovenia. It was founded in 1821. The museum palace in the very centre of Ljubljana was built in 1888 and was the first building in Slovenia assigned exclusively to...more
Maybe I have seen too many museums. I am interested in history and like to visit the national museum when I go to a country to get a sense of its history. This one was well organised and informative with a nice staff. The artefact...More
It's a nice little place. The hidden gem was the Neanderthal flute, but there was a whole lore more with beautiful artifacts. Fairly easy, only took us an hour and half with the natural history museum combined. But we are pretty quick compared to your...More
Interesting, detailed account of central European history from prehistoric times to medieval. Excellent displays & signage, in Slovenian and English. No cafe in museum, only coffee - if you need a food break (we were here much longer than we expected to be), the Maxi...More
Best display of early histroy artefacts we’ve ever seen. A huge collection, well-sequenced with sources detailed, all clearly explained in English labels. So much better than Vienna equivalent. It took us 2 hours to get to the Roman invasion, and the displays went on and...More

we are very happy you enjoyed our permanent archaeological collection. At the end of 2019, we are opening the last part of the permanent exhibition and the artefacts from early prehistory (Stone, Copper and Bronze age) will shine in a brand new light....More
It is worth visiting for oldest wooden carriage wheel, neanderthal flute made from bone which is considered oldest instrument found and roman boat from river Ljubljanica. There us also Mammut skeleton on display with some additional artifacts. Must see when with kids in Ljubljana.
Very nice museum that’s worth a visit. Their exhibits of artifacts from the Stone Age and Iron Age are quite interesting. My favorite part was the pre-Roman and Roman periods. The artifacts, especially the swords and helmets are in remarkable condition. Dress light as the...More
This is the oldest Museum in Slovenia and worth a visit for the architecture alone.
The staircase with the marble 'muses' is quite something.
Entrance for Adults is 8.50 but is included with the wonderful Ljubljana Card. A big thank you to Neza at reception...More
Never saw a museum with less to tell and show. Only a few old stones and some extremely generic stuff.
It's cheap but compared to the knowledge I gained there every costs seems too much. Though the service was nice.
Went there with my son on Slovenian cultural day (8th February) when there is free entrance. It is a nice display of different historical findings from bronze age to Roman empire age. Absolute highlight is the Vače Situla and the earliest musical instrument in the...More
Ljubljana is such a pleasant outdoor walking destination that I was mildly surprised to have a leading local guide recommend the museum as the ideal starting point for a tour. Far from being a stuffy old repository, this collection of artifacts deserves much more attention...More
