Overview
More
The Slovene Ethnographic Museum is a museum "about people, for people", a museum of cultural identities, a link between the past and the present, between traditional and modern culture, between our own and other cultures, between the natural environment and civilisation. It is a museum of dialogue, open, active and hospitable, dedicated to serving the public. It presents and reports on traditional culture as well as mass and pop culture in Slovenia and the diaspora, on non-European cultures, and on the material and intangible cultural heritage of both everyday and festive life.

We enjoyed the exhibits, however it would have been more interesting in they would have had more English translations. We couldn't identify some of the items because of this.

We visited as the first thing on our list while in Ljubljana as it is probably the closest to the train station. The museum is well laid out and easy to find. We spent about 45 minutes here which was just long enough to walk...More

a surprisingly large museum with pretty much everything you'd want to know about Slovenia (in it's various forms over the millennia). When we went they had a marvelous collection of doors - yeah, that's right, dozens of doors - from ancient to contemporary that were...More
