Technical Museum of Slovenia, Ljubljana

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.

  • I have been to this museum with my daughter several times in a time period of over a decade. It is just amazing how children react to well presented and educationally well founded materials. But it is not just for children. Technically and historically savvy persons can find here really a lot of interesting and aesthetically pleasing things. Strongly recommend place for several hours of quality learning experience.
  • It's a very nice place with historical museum and a restaurant just opposite it.It's got a wide parking area and a great view of surroundings. You can go to the museum and see old cars of Titto(ex -Yugoslavia president) and so many other historical things. The restaurant here has got a warm and friendly staff with great customer care.
  • Big. Interesting. Well maintained. Most exhibits with local and English notes. Diverse subjects covered. Great value and well worth a visit. Allow at least 2 hours. You could easily spend 3 or 4 hours there if you're really interested in industry and mechanical engineering.
  • Beautiful location and tonnes to see. Highly recommended.
  • The history of the last century at your fingertips! Attractive for everyone.
