Interesting exhibitions both permanent and traveling. Slightly confusing to navigate the layout. Definitely enjoyed the museum's reflection on their role in society and some of the challenges of ethnography. For touring exhibit not as much English translation but still was interesting to look at.

Some interesting stuff, especially the fishing boat and the handmade furniture and home goods. Some displays more about generic things like sterotypes that seemed out of place. Highlight was the display regarding immigration of Slovenians to other parts of the world. It was shocking to...More

Absolutely one of the best museums Ljubljana has to offer. You learn everything you need to know about Slovenian culture and costums, and usually they have an exhibition with world cultures as well.

In Etnographic Museum in Ljubljana until March 2018 you can see an interesting exhibition abouth Afghanistan which will bring you closer to the people and customs of these mysterious lands, which are hardly accessible to tourists.

Yes overall a quite good museum, great info on Slovenia. Strange comments about stereotypes, as the display about Australia (I'm a native) was a complete and rather out-dated stereotype.
