One of the most monumental examples of industrial architecture in Ljubljana, a source of inspiration for a leading quartet of modernists, a modern exhibition space and also an urban landmark that invites us to stroll along the Ljubljanica to the eastern edge of the city centre – Cukrarna is all these things. The City of Ljubljana, which has been guiding the extensive renovation of the building – to plans by architecture studio Scapelab – since 2018, has entrusted the management of Cukrarna to Museum and Galleries of Ljubljana. The inaugural exhibition, entitled The Wonderfulness of Memory, focuses on the interweaving of past and present as its central theme. 

Open days for visitors is taking place on the first weekend of every month until the end of the year.
