Worth a visit
Oct 2019 • Solo
The museum is well organized with a map and signs indicating the best viewing order. Workers are very friendly and speak English quite well. I found one mistake in a translation. In Earth #6, there is a silhouette of Maria Regina Attems in which the English translation does not match the Slovenian. The English description correctly appears in another silhouette for Afra.

One of the most beautiful museums in Slovenia
Sep 2019
It is my second visit to this marvelous place. A great museum that covers Ethnogrfy, history and more in a very informative way and everything in English as well. Very well designed and exhibited. The main hall with the frescos is a masterpiece.
The local team is super.

Fun and informative
Jul 2019 • Family
There are many different exhibitions in this museum and that makes it a lot of fun even for children as everyone can find something that appeals to them. The exhibitions are informative and comprehensive and the castle the museum is stationed in is an exhibit in itself, especially the Knights' Hall with its baroque frescoes. Worth a visit!

Amazing ceiling painting
Sep 2018 • Friends
Wasnt sure what to expect as there a lot of castles in this area. But the exhibits are excellent especially if your looking for the history of Slovenia and the local area or anything war related.

The ceiling in the main hall and in some of the staircases are amazing and well worth the 4euro admission.
