Nice walk through Tivoli Park to get here and pleasantly surprised at free entry with our ISIC student cards. The museum was really interesting, providing a lot of info from the period around WW1 up to the modern era. Lots of artifacts, propaganda posters and...More

Historian Margaret MacMillan notes that both WW I & WW II resulted from the upheavals caused by the break-up of the Austrian Hungarian Empire. So I expected this museum - located in the region - to provide vast insights into why this was was the...More

3 days sightseeing in Ljubljana wasn't enough so on a further day trip, this museum was a priority. The bus from Bled stops at Tivoli and five minutes walk takes you to the door of this impressive mansion in the park. Entrance is only 3.50...More

Thank you very much for such a wonderful summary of our museum! We are very happy you've enjoyed it! Best, National Museum of Contemporary History team

Reviewed 7 June 2018 via mobile

First, the museum is located in the beautiful Tivoli park, so the walk there is already very enjoyable. Second, the entrance fee is very affordable, €4,50 adult, but €2,50 for students or free if you have ISIC. Finally, the museum is very rich in authentic...More

The Muzej Novejse Zgodovine Slovenije is 20 minutes walk from the Prešeren Monument. It is a must for all those interested in 20th century history - the anti-fascist partisan exhibits were particularly good.

This museum is a must for those wanting to understand more about Slovenia and the area once known as Yugoslavia. Very interesting and insightful. There was a exhibition about refugees that I found very moving. Simple photos but so emotive.

This was a great museum for getting an overview of Slovenian history from the 19th through the 21st century. We spent about 2 hours slowly moving from period to period and could have easily taken another hour. We were fortunate to have a local guide...More
