Overview
More
The Slovene Ethnographic Museum is a museum "about people, for people", a museum of cultural identities, a link between the past and the present, between traditional and modern culture, between our own and other cultures, between the natural environment and civilisation. It is a museum of dialogue, open, active and hospitable, dedicated to serving the public. It presents and reports on traditional culture as well as mass and pop culture in Slovenia and the diaspora, on non-European cultures, and on the material and intangible cultural heritage of both everyday and festive life.

You can easily spend a lot of time here, it turned out to be a much bigger museum than I expected. The exhibits hold so much information and all the things they have on display are a sight to see.

Very helpful girl at reception, giving tips on where to start, which direction to go in and the exhibits on each floor. Not only a great insight into Slovenian life and history but also that of Afghanistan.

This museum is a must see (though sadly not at all busy), staff members are very welcoming and informed. The museum is in a large, modern, building, with permanent exhibitions, and an interesting and moving temporary exhibition on migration and Afghanistan. It opens with an...More

We enjoyed the exhibits, however it would have been more interesting in they would have had more English translations. We couldn't identify some of the items because of this.

We visited as the first thing on our list while in Ljubljana as it is probably the closest to the train station. The museum is well laid out and easy to find. We spent about 45 minutes here which was just long enough to walk...More
