Technical Museum of Slovenia, Ljubljana

(4.2/5 based on 30+ reviews on the web)
Occupying the buildings and grounds of a former monastery, Technical Museum of Slovenia boasts a collection of luxury cars once used by Tito, president of former Yugoslavia for nearly four decades. Hugely appealing to car lovers, the museum also features many exhibits dedicated to hunting, fishing, woodworking, forestry, and electrical engineering. Some of the most popular areas include a recreation of a blacksmiths shop, flour mill, and a sawmill. Guided tours in several languages (including English) bring the science and technology behind the exhibits closer to the visitors. Those interested in a more immersive experience can join a demonstration or workshop on a range of technological subjects.

  • It is very nice museum in a wonderful environment. But this museum is NOT in Ljubljana , but about 20 kilometers to the south  more »
  • Returning from Ljubljana to Italy, we stopped in Vrhinika, about 15/20 km. Reading the Guide, we decided to go see the Charterhouse of Bistra. Inside is housed the Museum of technology that until Monday so we only did the rounds outside. The Park is really nice: trails, wooden bridges over streams, pond and the chance to watch some old pieces of industrial machinery. Really a nice surprise. If you're nearby in Ljubljana, a ride to Bistra.

  • It is located half an hour from Ljubljana, but it shouldn't be missed. Me and my family spend a quality time there, so it could be interesting even for the young children. You'll need at least 2-3 hours for the visit.
