Slovene Ethnographic Museum



Slovene Ethnographic Museum (SEM) presents Slovenian and other European and non-European history, runs different state-of-the-art exhibitions, interesting workshops, diverse educational programs and releases various attractive publications.

Slovene Ethnographic Museum dates back in 1923 when it was separated from Slovene National Museum. Museum started its own scientific research about human culture in life of Slovenians from rural areas before and after 2nd World War.

Today Slovene Ethnographic Museum presents cultural identity, a dialogue between past and present, between our own and other cultures as well as between nature and civilization. With Slovene and non-European collections about material, social and spiritual culture it seeks to preserve, examine, learn and understand all these collections.

Visitors are able to find diverse museum exhibitions:

Permanent exhibitions:

Between Nature and Culture - The treasure house of Slovene and non-European heritage of the everyday and the festive. The exhibition where Slovene and non-European objects tell stories of people ... Where man, nature and culture spin in an eternal dance ...

I, We and Others: Images of my World - An exhibition about man and his place in the world; about personal, communal and universal heritage - what it is, how it comes about and what it means. It is a space in which to pause between everyday responsibilities, to contemplate yourself and others, to reflect on the world and the life we live.

The Museum is accessible to the disabled.
