Technical Museum of Slovenia, Ljubljana

4.6
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.

  • We went on our way back to Ljubljana. Worth to visit the rooms of the Abbey, both for the richness of its content. From classic cars and motorcycles, history of activities such as the production of textiles, and baking, to wood in all its forms (importance of forests, tree felling, timber transportation, reforestation techniques, use of wood ...) machine tools ... All accompanied by photographs showing how some activities have evolved from 800 today. There are also children's parties with "experiments" to do. Unfortunately we couldn't have stayed at least half a day, as it deserves, and some parts we have seen just in a hurry. But we promised to come back (maybe staying in gostlina opposite). The big problem was finding the country, which is not very well sign posted.

  • Really something wonderful and informative ... to anyone who visits Ljubljana or its surroundings must come to the Museum and enjoy a "history" of old pictures, photos, tools, weapons, technology, cars and everything else what the Museum has to offer. The price of the tour is €4.5 for older and really worth every cent. ...

  • a great museum, lots to see, nice ambient, cheap entrance fee. however, we were really bothered by the sexism in the descriptions, i.e. “humans” in slovenian being translated as “man” and a sole use of male pronouns (both in english and slovenian). also, there were many grammatical errors in the english translations. please, correct that as soon as possible, as a public museum it is your duty to promote an equal society. thanks!
  • No new things for long time. Poorly maintained museum. Could be much better experience.
  • I have been here at least a dozen of times and the park in the middle of the nature still dazzles me when I se it. They have such a beautiful scenery a middle age monastery where they currently hold a technical museum Bistra surounded by parks and trees. They also have a lake near but it is privately owned and not maintaned.
  • Very interesting museum for everyone interested in the technical stuff. There are all kinds of exhibitions my favorite one is the one representing forest, wood processing and carpentry. However, be avare it could be very cold in the winter. Kids favorite are the cars of former president Tito.
  • An interesting museum in an even more interesting and beautiful castle.
