Attraction details
Owner description: A place where technical heritage and nature tell many great stories…Behind the gates of a former Carthusian monastery you can find Slovenia’s largest museum – The Technical Museum of Slovenia. It is located in the most beautiful natural surroundings on the outskirts of Ljubljana. Several collections can be seen in the museum: from forestry, woodworking, hunting, fishing and agricultural departments, to textiles, printing, traffic and electrical engineering. The attention of most visitors is drawn towards the water-driven elements -the flour mill, blacksmith’s workshop, fulling mill and veneer sawmill. Road vehicle fans won’t be disappointed either. They can admire the oldest surviving car from Slovenia or enjoy the sight of the limousines that once belonged to President Tito, Premier of former Yugoslavia. Apart from the guided tour in Slovene, English, Italian and German languages through the museum collections, visitors can also attend several workshops and demonstrations, through which they can truly experience the technical spirit of the past. With prior arrangement, we can organize workshops and demonstrations for groups outside of our schedule. In addition to the permanent collection, you can also visit some temporary exhibitions. Museum’s opening hours:Tuesday - Friday: 8 a.m. – 4 p.m. (July and August: 10 a.m. – 6 p.m.) Saturdays: 9 a.m. - 5 p.m.Sundays and holidays: 10 a.m. – 6 p.m.Mondays: closed.From 4th December until 1 March the museum is closed for visitors (except for groups announced in advance) due to unheated rooms.

“nice”
Reviewed April 20, 2012

We've spent a rainy few hours there. It's full of texidermy, cars,motorobikes and motorcycles, plus quite a bit more, from tapistry to info on textilles. Nice thing to see, don't miss Tito's cars, which in my opinion, are worth the 4,5€ entrance fee. The surroundings are absolutly romantic and perfect.
It is obvious that the museum is lacking funds which could make it a must see, but it is still definitly worth seeing.

Be aware though: It's packed on Saturdays as it's a popular wedding venue!!
