About
The basic activity of the public institute Center of Space Technologies Herman Potočnik Noordung is the promotion of space technologies and the manifestation of human achievements in space with the interweaving of art and high technologies. The offer includes the development, installation and marketing of space content in the form of art exhibitions, exhibitions of items and multimedia interactive applications that we offer to the general public. Also, by connecting with and integrating into international connections, we ensure greater recognizability of Slovenian and international institutions in the field of space activities in all areas. Through the implementation of dedicated symposiums, we present and expand the significance of space exploration to the general public.

Situated on country side, you find large building in form of space as was proposed by Hermann Potočnik in later 1920. Inside a guided tour of his life, and work and book that inspired also W. Braun. Lots of items to see, timeline of space race, small Moon rock and Galileo satellite and some Nani satellites. You can also observe Tesla exhibition. A must see for science buffs.

This fine architecture is not in Ljubljana. It is a small village north from Celje. Village has two churches and the center. It is like a space ship in the middle of some houses. They have good exhibitions. Tourist offer in the village is poor

KSEVT is one of the most astonishing buildings, I ever visited. And it is more: It is an incredible "Gesamtkunstwerk", build and invented to give respect to the nearly unknown visionary founder of modern space travel Herman Noordung.

Really nothing special and no added value... As a family with teenagers, we did not enjoy this experience... mostly pictures and some not so special plastic replicates - nothing you can not see or learn on the internet.
3D virtual reality was very poor (as well one of the gadgets did not work), also bad (not clear) info. at the gates/cash register.
Altogether is also quite expensive, considering what you get :(

A place to honour a Slovenian scientist and his mother. Designed like a space station mostly use for doing shoots or museum . Very small compared to what we see in google photo. But should be watched if can drive an hour plus from Celje

We (our family) visited Cultural Centre of European Space Technologies (KSEVT) because we see it on the TV. Right now there is an exhibition of cameras used for taking photos from space.
There is also permanent exhibition of Herman Potočnik's Noordung and his visions of traveling and living in space.
Now there is also the first digital planetarium in Slovenia. The visit takes about 45 minutes and I absolutely advice to visit it.

Center Noordung is unbelievable (positively!). It has really special architecture and excellent exhibitions. Guided tours are amazing, I really learned a lot. The themes of exhibitions are Herman Potočnik Noordung (his life and work), satellites, project Copernicus, Slovenia in space (Slovenian companies that made special products used in space technology), Life in space (here you learn a lot about International Space Station), Moon (this time they had a real Moon rock, also a model of rocket Saturn V and lunar module Eagle), Mars (many models of vehicles on Mars and robot SARA that looks like a spider) and many more! They have many interactive features, for example Room 360, VR Electra, which is a flight simulator, and VR Noordung, which is like a walk through our solar system. They even have a humanoid robot called Vita and you can talk with her. The staff is great and always available for any questions. They also reply fast on e-mails and answer calls. Absolutely worth visiting!

After visiting few space museums in Europe (for example in Moscow) we have decided to visit that one in small village of Vitanje... and were disappointed. To start with, opening hours: only to 3 PM, even during summer time. Poor explanation of examples, very short. Kids (7 and 12 years old) went for VR kids tour - 5-6 min of improvisation with VR glasses, handling planets in “hands” and being lost in space. First reaction is “great”, due to VR effect, but lost after couple of hours. Price performance is rather poor.
So, if you have never been to any space museum - it’s nice to have a quick look and get the first impression + get some info about Slovenian space research pioneer Herman Potocnik. Otherwise, I would recommend to skip it.

Vitanje is a very small town not far from Zreče an Celje. KSEVT is unexpected but worth a visit for a family, curious youth or expert looking for details regarding space travel and research.

KSEVT celebrates in its architecture Herman Potocnik, Slovenian rocket pioneer that first came up with the idea of inhabiting space using a rotating wheel to created artificial gravity (as in 2001 Space Odissea of S. Kubrick) . Potocnik mother was from Vitanje where KSEVT is.

The exhibition is very interesting, the installations excellent.

Enjoy also the beautiful surroundings.
