“There are numerous world-famous artworks and museum items in Ljubljana. Do you know them? Come see outstanding museum exhibits without having to travel abroad. Several Ljubljana museums have joined forces to give you a special welcome: Until 30 August 2020 you can visit 13 venues with a single ticket!” says the promotional brochure.
This year our Museums on a Summer Night event saw so many visitors we were encouraged to do more. Hoping to attract domestic tourists and provide them with ideas for spending the summer while not traveling abroad, 11 Ljubljana museum institutions have come together in a joint action.
And what are the must-see cultural heritage items this summer? A Neanderthal flute, a prehistoric wooden wheel and axle, chinoiserie figurines, a ceremonial pipe of peace, the Škofja Loka Passion Play, works by Slovene impressionist painters, Zoran Mušič’s We are not the Last…, an old classroom, Stojan Batič’s studio, the Enigma encryption machine, Marina Abramović’s Rhythm 0, and Saša Mächtig’s K67 kiosk.

The 1950s saw an unexpected flourishing of the Slovene art scene. One of the most prominent figures on it was the sculptor Stojan Batič, while the international biennial of graphic arts made Ljubljana more cosmopolitan.
