National Museum of Contemporary History

Muzej novejše zgodovine Slovenije

On the fringe of the Tivoli Park in Ljubljana stands a unique Baroque building of the Cekin Castle – the home of the National Museum of Contemporary History since 1951. The history of the castle was strongly marked by its interesting former inhabitants, from the Italian viceroy Eugen Euharnais to the first beer-brewing family Kozler. Today the castle houses the National Museum of Contemporary History, together with its permanent exhibition called “Slovenians in the 20th century” and numerous temporary exhibitions.

The Museum preserves, studies and presents the material and immaterial heritage of the Slovenian ethnical region from the beginning of the 20th century to present days. It preserves collections of material dating from the First and Second World War, material from the period between the two wars and material from the period of socialism and the birth of the new state. Its collections consist of museum objects, archive and library material, art works and photographs; new items are being constantly added.
