During July and August, the City Museum of Ljubljana is switching to its summer opening hours, which means that our doors will also stay open on Mondays! We are inviting everyone to the Auersperg Palace, which reveals the rich heritage that Ljubljana and its surroundings offer.
This year’s winner of the 26th edition of the Tour of Slovenia will also receive a trophy in the shape of the 5200 years old wooden when with an axle, which was found in the Ljubljana Marshes and is now exhibited at the City Museum of Ljubljana. The race’s organisers decided for a novelty this year, as all previous winners in the 25-year history of the Tour of Slovenia will be engraved on the backside of the trophy.
On Museums on a Summer Night, we are opening our doors for visitors.
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.
