Owner description: A place where technical heritage and nature tell many great stories…Behind the gates of a former Carthusian monastery you can find Slovenia’s largest museum – The Technical Museum of Slovenia. It is located in the most beautiful natural surroundings on the outskirts of Ljubljana. Several collections can be seen in the museum: from forestry, woodworking, hunting, fishing and agricultural departments, to textiles, printing, traffic and electrical engineering. The attention of most visitors is drawn towards the water-driven elements -the flour mill, blacksmith’s workshop, fulling mill and veneer sawmill. Road vehicle fans won’t be disappointed either. They can admire the oldest surviving car from Slovenia or enjoy the sight of the limousines that once belonged to President Tito, Premier of former Yugoslavia. Apart from the guided tour in Slovene, English, Italian and German languages through the museum collections, visitors can also attend several workshops and demonstrations, through which they can truly experience the technical spirit of the past. With prior arrangement, we can organize workshops and demonstrations for groups outside of our schedule. In addition to the permanent collection, you can also visit some temporary exhibitions. Museum’s opening hours:Tuesday - Friday: 8 a.m. – 4 p.m. (July and August: 10 a.m. – 6 p.m.) Saturdays: 9 a.m. - 5 p.m.Sundays and holidays: 10 a.m. – 6 p.m.Mondays: closed.From 4th December until 1 March the museum is closed for visitors (except for groups announced in advance) due to unheated rooms.

It's placed in old monastry. Enviroment and expo itself are unic. Only problem is you must have your own transport. Ask at turist info in Ljubljana for the way. It's nice trip and excellent way to see something special. It offers look into forgoten way of living. Worth to risk half of day for.

Well, I was there twice, never finished the whole visit. But managed to see it all on those two trips. I was recently also in the natural museum in Ljubljana, where they ALSO have stuffed animals on show. My guess is the best goes to the Natural museum in Ljubljana, everything else, so it is not thrown away, goes to... More

We were the only visitors that afternoon - family of 6, including 4 kids. We enjoyed every bit of it the only two regrets were that a) the place was empty - good for us, bad for the place, it has to be advertised more aggressively b) we did not know and could not have imagined that the place is...

We've spent a rainy few hours there. It's full of texidermy, cars,motorobikes and motorcycles, plus quite a bit more, from tapistry to info on textilles. Nice thing to see, don't miss Tito's cars, which in my opinion, are worth the 4,5€ entrance fee. The surroundings are absolutly romantic and perfect. It is obvious that the museum is lacking funds which... More
