It is not complicated to find this castle in the eastern part of Ljubljana. Building is near the highway (exit Fužine), near the pathway of remembrance and easily reachable by public transport – line 20 or 22, last stop. For drivers they have free parking near the museum. A kind of renaissance castle stands near Ljubljanica river. Usually they have... More

Positive points: - at the time of our visit, one of the exhibitions was about "The Century of the Poster" and was interesting (no guide available but all key explanations in English). - the building (small castle) itself, boarding the Ljubija river, is cute. However, the museum is quite far from downtown (out of the map) and I was not... More

Visited on a Friday with a group of friends and we took a car there. No parking problems at all.

The museum shop had amazing stuff from Slovenian designers. Later we... More

A friend recommended this design and architecture museum that is located a short bus ride from the city center. It is housed in a real castle. A castle! There was a guided tour in progress but it was in Slovene, so the friendly lady at the entrance explained to the guide we don't speak Slovene and the guide was kind... More

I've been in other museums of architectire and design and had good expectations about this one. The travel guide said wonderful things about this museum, but it was a tremedous disappointment. Besides being far away from the city, there is nothing in this museum that is worth paying the entrance. In my visit in October 2014 there was a small... More

We visited the museum as it is currently hosting the BIO exhibition. The museum has an interesting fit out with ramshackle parts left exposed. Parking was a little difficult and the museum is outside the city centre but we thoroughly enjoyed our stop there.
