Dear visitors, the doors of the City Museum remain open. You are warmly invited to visit.
Our annual exhibition Book. Knowledge. Reason. presents the processes and events that encouraged and fostered the cultural and spiritual development in Ljubljana from the end of the 15th to the beginning of the 19th century – from humanism and Protestantism to the Enlightenment.
The City Museum of Ljubljana is the custodian of a vast collection of portraits, works by Andrej Herrlein (1738–1817).
Let your research work become a good story!
Heritage of Emona connects to the heritage of the Danubian provinces of the ancient Roman Empire.

City Museum of Ljubljana
Since its foundation in 1935, the City Museum of Ljubljana has been housed by the Auersperg Palace. The museum conserves tens of thousands museum treasures, among which the world's oldest wooden wheel with an axle is the most prominent. Among the museum's more noticeable projects in the last few years were the exhibitions WHEEL 5200, WATER, Emona: a City of the Empire, A New Age is Coming! Industry – Labour – Capital, and Medieval Ljubljana.
With the merger of the City Museum of Ljubljana and the City Art Gallery of Ljubljana in 2009 into the Museum and Galleries of Ljubljana, the city's largest cultural institution, the museum became part of the living and current museum-gallery offering. At the institution, we maintain genuine contact with our local and foreign visitors, our exhibitions and events serve to popularise collections, and we encourage dialogue between heritage, art, and the challenges of contemporary society.
