Small, well presented museum, showing the highlights of Ljubljana from prehistory to modern era, passing through Roman Emona. As a plus, the ticket allows entrance also to two archeological sites within the old Roman town, showing remnants of a large villa and of an early Christian worship site. In addition, there are many free sites related to Emona still visible... More

The Salgado exhibition is incredible! The photos are of remote places, tribal people, wildlife and beautiful landscapes. The photographs are stunning and the exhibition is very well put together, across the city museum and the Jakopic gallery (just a short walk away). A must see!

We went to this museum because of the Sebastiao Salgado exhibit of photography but got so much more. The permanent exhibit really is about Ljubljana and Slovenia's history starting with the Romans and some archaeological finds--it is better organized than some of the other museums. Very interesting. The Salgado exhibit is world-class. It portrays great animals in the wild, isolated... More

Normally city museums are full of boring material along with interesting objects... City Museum of Ljubljana is a kind of living place. The exhibition style is really cleverly planned and visitor-friendly. "The 2016 European Green Capital" feels itself in every corner whilst you can see the ethnographical identity of the city... Yesterday, Today, Tomorrow! You can feel and learn them... More

Only 6 Euros for an adult and this included a map of the free Roman sites in the city and entry into other museums. The information was presented attractively and intelligently. If you wish to just dip your toe in it's not overwhelming, however, if like myself you want more the various labels and computer screens provide that depth rather... More

I saw the water exibition on a free tour. The exibition was not that thriling, but the guide was very good, entertaining us, telling ot of less known things...and all that in good English. I hould come back to see some other exibitions... - good option for a rainy day as it is located in the old town

It was a nice visit, but the directions weren't well indicated, so we didn't really know where to begin,

I was hoping to see the oldest wooden wheel and axel in the world, but it wasn't at the museum in February 2016. It's on loan somewhere else. When I did my research, it was going to be on loan in Germany in April 2016, so I was hoping to find it there. Call ahead to see if the wheel... More

Great museum for school students. We stopped in to see the exhibit of the Shroud of La Higuera. Cool building and displays were very nice. Would recommend.

Not the most exciting place here but tells the past story that resulted in the present. Trying toform the culture. See the flags of EEuropean Union, Ljubljana and Slovenia and a beautiful courtyard inside.
