How well do you know the rich history of Slovenian capital? Pile-dwellers, Emona, Middle and New Ages, the 20th and 21st centuries… what is the history of Ljubljana?

A chronological presentation of Ljubljana’s millennia of heritage with precious authentic artefacts, like the world's oldest wooden wheel with an axle, is now on display!

In our globalised world, heritage just might be what differentiates cities the most, and it also shaped our capital's identity. Therefore, the exhibition proudly highlights local peculiarities, stories of everyday life in the past, and the individuals who left the strongest impressions on our history.

In autumn, the museum will also publish a popular-scientific monograph about the history of Ljubljana. The book will present five great periods in Ljubljana’s past: from the first traces of man to the first permanent settlements and their development in prehistory, the first city during the Roman period, the origins and development of the walled medieval city, cultural and urbanistic developments during the early modern period and the vivid political events of the 20th century.
