The National Museum of Slovenia, founded in 1821, is the oldest of all Slovenian museum institutions. Its six departments collect, document, preserve, and investigate the mobile cultural heritage of Slovenia and present it to the public.
The displays are housed in a building from 1888, which is the first neighbour of both the national Parliament and Opera & Ballet Theatre.
Some function spaces in the Museum, if they are not in use for the primary mission of the institution, can be hired for diverse purposes: presentations, press conferences, concerts, receptions and gala dinners. The most attractive among them is the Atrium, located just above the entrance foyer, with a surface area of 422 m2.
A few blocks away, at National Museum of Slovenia – Metelkova, at Maistrova Street, you can also organize lectures, presentations and small gatherings in their conference room and events on the terrace when the weather permits.
