Locations

In addition to the main building, the City Museum of Ljubljana has several more subsidiary units and is at the same time a part of the larger family of the City Museum and Galleries of Ljubljana.


The remains of the archaeological heritage of the Roman City of Emona In situ
can be visited at the early Christian place of worship and the Emonian House – at the archaeological parks located in the immediate vicinity of the museum.


Its Conservatory Centre ŠČIT is also only a stone's throw away from the museum. Here is where the comprehensive treatment of the museum’s objects, carried out by curators and conservators and restorers, and the preparation of the exhibitions for the City Museum of Ljubljana takes place. Those of you who are fans or just curious are always welcome to the specialist workshops, which are otherwise of the closed type, and we from time to time also organize open days.



If you head off to Rožnik during the weekends or holidays, do not overlook the memorial room of Ivan Cankar there, of which the sight takes you to the times when our greatest writer Ivan Cankar used to live on the famous Ljubljana hill. Visitors to the City library can also stop off at the permanent exhibition of Župančič’s memorial collection.



The City Museum of Ljubljana also welcomes you to the Ljubljana Castle where, in 2010, we the producers and managers have opened the permanent exhibition of Slovenian history, by Dr. Božo Repe and his colleagues.

Other scenes of contemporary and traditional art practices and content of immovable and movable cultural heritage are:



The City Gallery of Ljubljana is a place for all of you who are interested in domestic and foreign contemporary visual art. The Gallery’s activities are focused on preparing and taking on monographic and group (retrospective, study) exhibitions of Slovenian and foreign authors, wherein they are not confined only to Europe, but also extend into a broader cultural area.



Ever since it became a part of MGML in 2008, the Jakopič Gallery, with its extraordinary gallery space, has once again become the scene of vital events for contemporary art practices in Ljubljana.



The Bežigrad
Gallery is one of the smaller fine art exhibitions in Ljubljana. It was established in 1976. Since 1996, it has been operating as a unit of the City Gallery of Ljubljana. Every year there are 12 kinds of exhibitions, also in cooperation with the more important galleries in Slovenia and abroad. The program can be divided into three parts: an independent exhibition of younger fine art artists, a "historical" exhibition, at which the works of famous domestic fine art artists are usually presented. One of the gallery’s special features includes exhibitions of installations and facilities.



The Vžigalica Gallery
is the most flexible member of the MGML group. It is a venue for various sorts of projects in the field of contemporary fine art, audio-visual, performance and other artistic practices. It successfully cooperates with non-governmental and other organizations in the field of culture. Along with this, it acts as a laboratory for new ideas, creative formulas and different approaches, which are always derived from qualitative artistic production.
