We thoroughly enjoyed this museum. It includes many fascinating artifacts dating from Roman times. Everything is well presented and described in English. We highly recommend this museum and consider it a must see attraction.

Like so much in Ljubljana, the City Museum (Mestni Musej) is small and high quality. Our kids like it because of a booklet they get upon entering. They go through the museum looking for frogs, solving puzzles and interacting with mini exhibits. Going through the...More
