From the Late Middle Ages
Permanent Exhibition of Slovenian History
The exhibition takes visitors from prehistory to the present in a simple and understandable fashion.
A twelve-minute projection showing the history of the Ljubljana Castle, its architectural development, archaeological discoveries – all the way through to its present image!
Museum of Puppetry
Slovenian Puppets under One Roof.
Viewing Tower and Pipers' Tower
With the arrival of the French in 1813, the original defence tower, the Pipers’ Tower, was destroyed (it may in fact have just fallen down from neglect).
The permanent exhibition entitled The Penitentiary at the Ljubljana Castle follows the concept of a comprehensive presentation of the history of the Ljubljana Castle, which through the centuries has changed its image and purpose, as an inseparable link in the development of Ljubljana.
The permanent exhibition iLjubljana, located on the glazed floor on the way to the Viewing Tower, invites visitors to explore the city over its 4,500 years of settlement.
Hand blown crystal dripstones, originally inspired by karst caves, are illuminated by optic fibres, led to them in bundles from the source of light.
Ancient Wall Paintings
Fragments from the Baroque period (the end of the 17th century).
310-Million-Year-Old Rocks with Fossils
The exhibition shows the geological structure of the Sava Folds, original examples of Upper Carboniferous plant fossils. Part of the layer in which the fossils were found is also preserved.
The Renovation and Revitalisation of the Ljubljana Castle
With selected photographic material, which has been preserved by the architectural bureau Ambient, we seek to guide you through yet another story of the Ljubljana Castle – the story of its fundamental revitalisation in the 20th century.
