Just a few steps away from the Ljubljanica riverbanks in the Old Town, the modernly renovated Auersperg Palace is becoming an increasingly popular special venue for the organisation of receptions, banquets, smaller conferences or seminars, as well as cultural and other events. 

The Museum’s atrium - or the heart of the renaissance palace, is distinguished for its pure elegance and functionality. The white marble, glass galleries and solid stone columns and arches, which offer a view of the open inner courtyard, lend it a special atmosphere. The atrium can welcome up to 200 guests (or 400 joined if joined with the courtyard) at receptions and up to 80 guests for a banquet /seated dinner. The Museum’s premises offer other original function areas, including the 81-seater Projection room, which is a conference room suitable for smaller conferences, lectures, panels, round tables presentations, and where 30 more seats can be added. The so-called Mayor’s Room is most suitable for protocol receptions, award-giving ceremonies and formal social functions, with space for 60 guests standing or up to 45 seats. 

Last, but not least, the museum cafe stands on a 15th century floor and offers, through a glass bend, an original view of the courtyard and the cellar with an ancient, in situ Roman road. In this amazing atmosphere where the present blends with the distant past, small, intimate receptions, press conferences, concerts or poetry and prose readings can be organised – the capacity being 60 seats. 

An event at the City Museum of Ljubljana can be enhanced by a guided tour of the palace and the permanent collection.
