National Museum of Contemporary History of Slovenia

Muzej novejše in sodobne zgodovine Slovenije

The National Museum of Contemporary History of Slovenia is the central state institution for Slovenian history from the 20th century to the present day. We preserve cultural and historical heritage and study topics of political, social, economic and cultural life from the entire ethnic territory of Slovenia and beyond. The history of Slovenians is presented in the permanent exhibition Slovenians in the 20th Century, which is expanded with temporary exhibitions that reveal in more detail the various topics and periods of Slovenian history.

We highlight the landmark events, everyday life, social changes and cultural and artistic developments that have shaped our country and its people. Through contemporary approaches, interactive exhibitions and the involvement of a wide audience, we create unique projects and immersive experiences that promote understanding of the past, reflection on the present and the creation of a better and more responsible attitude towards the future.

The museum prepares guest exhibitions in Slovenia and abroad.
