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.
