Lonely Planet review
The excellent city museum focuses on Ljubljana’s history, culture and politics via imaginative multimedia and interactive displays. The reconstructed Roman street that linked the eastern gates of Emona to the Ljubljanica and the collection of well-preserved classical finds in the basement are worth a visit in themselves.
The permanent 'Faces of Ljubljana' exhibit of celebrated and lesser-known žabarji (‘froggers’, as natives of the capital are known) is memorable. They host some very good special exhibitions too.
