This place was without doubt the highlight of our day trip to Celje. The City under the City was stunning and the whole exhibition was fascinating. The staff are ultra friendly and very knowledgeable. I must single out the delightful Savina who took so much time to show us all round the Celje Regional Museum. This was also incredibly interesting, made even more so by Savina's knowledge and enthusiasm.
We are not normally museum people, but to spend over 2 hours here really blew us away.
It is ridiculously cheap for the whole experience.

The museum itself is composed of two buildings, one of which hosts an entire exhibition of the remains of the Roman city of Celeia which is a really impressive experience. The employees of both buildings are extremely friendly and will be glad to answer any questions you might have. If you’re visiting Celje, be sure to take the time to see this museum!

We experienced a well founded and detailed information about the archeological remains of the city of Celeia, discovered and presented in the middle of the today Celje. The particular exponats - statues, Roman road etc. - are presented mostly in situ, so you can make yourself a picture of your own, corroborated by the expert comments.
The only shortcoming (and the reason for only four stars rating instead of five) was the non-existing guidance through other departments of the museum.

Being an archaeologist, I loved the museum. Celeia - a town beneath a town is wondeful and so is the Prehistorical collection. Not knowing much about the Counts of Celje, this exhibition also taught me a lot and the Celje ceiling is breathtaking. Also, the staff is really friendly and knowledgeable.

First go downstairs to the roman part of the exhibition. During the roman era the old town of Celje was an important market place situated at the crossing of important imperial roads. The remaining of streets, foundations as well as pictures of antique floor tiles, which are still in other anchaelogical sites close by, are quite impressive. In the upper floors you could learn a lot about the importance and the power of the dukes of Celje. They extincted in the 15th century but are still remembered and respected by the locals.

Although it was pouring rain when my cousin and her husband took us out to see the Celje Museum, it didn't dampen our enthusiasm. (As others have noted, there are actually two buildings to the museum. Be sure to see both.)

There is so much history contained in these two buildings. Descriptions and pamphlets are available in English.

My favourite exhibits were the Roman lapidarium in the basement rooms of the Old Count's Mansion and Alma M. Karlin. What a fascinating person. Reading about her life and seeing her personal artifacts are not to be missed.

This museum is housed in two nearby but separate buildings. A ticket for one includes admission to the second. We started with "The Princely Palace Exhibition Grounds" (the most important part) and continued in the "Old Counts' Mansion".
The Palace contains the famous "Celje Ceiling", a remarkable late Renaissance non-religious painted ceiling with Jupiter & Neptune, allegorical scenes and so on, all in 'trompe l'oeil" style. Attributed to a North Italian artist from the early C.16th. There are also exhibits of fossils items from the Stone & Bronze ages, an in-situ Roman street, a Roman lapidarium, an Ethnological Exhibition, some fabulous wood-carving and much besides. But perhaps the two most interesting, and the most unexpected, were a huge permanent exhibition on the Counts of Celje (Grafen von Cilli), described as "the most important noble lineage in the Late Middle Ages" within Slovenia and also a big exhibition on Alma M. Karlin (1889-1950).
Now, I've got to admit, I'd never heard of Anna Karlin. But she seems to have been an extraordinary lady, who travelled the world, solo, in the 1920s and who was later awaiting deportation to Dachau when she escaped and joined the Partisans! To borrow the old joke, in Celje, she's "World Famous, hereabouts" and not without reason. Judging by the excellent and interesting display, it seems ridiculous that none of her many apparently well written travel books are now in print, at least in English or German translation. One might even wonder about the potential for a Hollywood blockbuster!

this is its main building 150 m from - the main building offers an opportunity to WALK throuhg the rear Roman street under the castle which is the original and was not moved from somewhere. Interesting exibition on the Middle Age period as well. Takes time to visit as it is big and has info in English (not always a case in Slovenia). The second building offers also interesting and deverse topcis on the ground floor and unique ceiling and real interior decoration, furniture, etc. of Prince of Celije and of that epoque.
