How well do you know the rich history of Slovenian capital? Pile-dwellers, Emona, Middle and New Ages, the 20th and 21st centuries… what is the history of Ljubljana? Get to know Ljubljana's past - see the chronological presentation of Ljubljana’s millennia of heritage with precious authentic artefacts, like the world's oldest wooden wheel with an axle!
In July and August 2022, during renovation of the hot water supply system in Argentina Park, archaeological research was carried out in the area between Štefanova ulica and Puharjeva ulica. The excavations uncovered part of Roman Emona’s northern cemetery. At one time, this would have extended along the road leading to Celeia (today’s Celje).
The exhibition presents 158 artworks from seven sketchbooks and folders with individual drawings, which could be often distinguished by the same impulses we encounter in his poetry.
The Emona Archaeological Park, with its 2000-year-old remains of the Roman colony of Emona, forms part of Ljubljana city centre. Development of the park began in the 1930s. During the most recent restoration work, 10 years ago, we decided to protect and revitalise the Emonan remains by creating an exciting programme and encouraging the public to visit. Today, where ancient walls once stood, we now create, learn and amuse ourselves.
Muzeji smo včasih nepričakovano deležni medijske pozornosti globalnih razsežnosti. In to ne nujno zaradi razstave, ki jo odpiramo. Včasih se delu javnosti naše zbirke ali to, kako jih interpretiramo, zdi kontroverzno in tako se znajdemo v središču zanimanja medijev in splošne javnosti.
Ivan Cankar, a Slovenian author, playwright and essayist born in 1876 in Vrhnika, spent a few years of his life in Ljubljana. Having returned from Vienna to Ljubljana, he established himself on Rožnik Hill which today forms part of the Tivoli, Rožnik and Šišenski hrib landscape park.
A special place in Ljubljana's history is reserved for Roman Emona, the traces of which have been preserved in the very centre of the city.
Welcome to a trail tracing the 2000-year-old heritage of Emona. A walk through modern Ljubljana can take you further than you think! It takes you to the time of Emona, a city brimming with life between the first century and early sixth century.
Razstava je plod sodelovanja konservatorske službe MGML, ALUO, Oddelka za restavratorstvo, Restavratorskega centra ZVKDS in drugih številnih zunanjih sodelavcev.
Dejstvo je, da so ženske ustvarjale skozi vso zgodovino likovne umetnosti. A je bilo njihovo delo zaradi poenostavljanja in izčiščevanja, ki ju zahteva umetnostna kronologija, ves čas prepuščeno pozabi. Poveličevanje posameznikov in ustvarjanje mitov je v zgodovinopisju dovoljevalo le vpis posameznic, kot je v slovenskem primeru denimo Ivana Kobilca.

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.
