    I thought about visiting the Museum to escape the sultry heat of the lunchtime and I opted for the National Museum. I expected a lot more signs ... Not a sign to indicate the ticket or entry. Just a green arrow that I follow confident. Later, greeting, no response. I approach the tour souvenir (?!) and wonder in English (sure I understand) if I can buy a ticket for the Museum. Here's ... now, I don't want to seem the usual Italian fussy but I expect (in a similar place) a minimum of empathy, a smile and a staff that reflected availability. None of those things. Ask me in a way nothing polite which I want to visit Museum. Why are there two. Historic or natural history. Rest a moment surprise but miss seems impatient. OK, the historic part. Definitely another person he'd convinced without too much effort to visit both but never mind. Ask directions to not get into the wrong Museum. What about ... aside from the dust on the steps (I can't help it, I dropped my eye!), the Museum was very clean. Very quiet and very empty. I really doubt arose if I were in a National Museum. Small, bare, only descriptions in Slovenian and English. No video, no screen, no table of insights. Boring. I loved the ancient ornaments of women and the famous prehistoric flute but I really felt like things were exposed so much to and not to arouse interest. I visited other museums in Slovenia far better and interesting. Finally I left as I entered: without a greeting from the staff.

    As visiting museums is part of my job (as a museum auditor) I perhaps look at other things than normal visitors even when I'm on holiday as now. I first visited the permanent exhibition and it is 4 ou...  more »

    Amazing exhibition. I have seen the one that presents instruments from the past. From early years (1000s of years ago) to the time of flourishing civilisations.

    Cheap entrance. Cronological and well made.

    They have great treasures but could try harder promoting them and could organize more events involving the public.

    Recommended for kids. I like free masonry exhibition.

Where to stay in Ljubljana

One of Europe's smaller capitals, Ljubljana offers fairly limited sleeping options, with most of its three- and four-star hotel rooms concentrated in and around the expensive city center. Travelers on a limited budget can explore the city's hostels, which offer small rooms with access to shared restrooms and common dining areas. If you need more privacy and space, rent an apartment on the outskirts of town, or check into one of the family-run guesthouses near the city's international airport.
