Museum in he middle of medieval city, not far from Križanke and National library refreshed the permanent exhibition in the second floor. It is interesting but little too crammed in some rooms. It is difficult to separate originals from photos, copies and other details. Guided...More

Begin your visit to Ljubljana with a visit to the City Museum. The permanent exhibition on how Ljubljana developed is a “must”. Most exhibits were accompanied by English text. The Roman ruins in the cellar are amazing. The staff are friendly and the cafe is...More

No joke ladies and gents, they make some of the best coffee outside of Budapest. If you can handle good strong coffee then go to their cafe. Ditch the learning, and get the caffeine. It isn't super cheap, but they blow Starbucks out of the...More

Nice museum! I liked the basement floor exhibition dedicated to the Roman history of the city. The new exhibition upstairs I didn’t like that much, but I understand the effort to attract the general public.

The City Museum was good and interesting but, when I visited in May 2018, one of the three floors was closed due to a re-vamp. It was a shame. The cafe in the basement was modern and attractive but very expensive.
