THE SECRET OF THE LODGE. Freemasonry in Slovenia

Temporary exhibition
Open from 28 February to 14 May 2017 at the National Museum of Slovenia – Prešernova
Extended until 28 May 2017
This exhibition displays the material and spiritual heritage of the Freemasonry on the 300th anniversary of the foundation of the Grand Lodge of England. Through tolerance and the promotion of other principal values, guided by the universal ethics of human equality, the fraternity fostered dialogue between different worldviews, thereby bridging social, national, ideological, and other conflicts. Nonetheless, its activity upset various religious and secular circles and, in particular, monopolistic ideologies.
For the first time, the public will be able to see the Freemasonry heritage of the Slovenian and foreign museums, archives and libraries, which will illustrate the history of Freemasonry from its origins to today. The Freemasonry scenography, symbols, and music background will take you through the fraternity’s rituals and allow you a unique experience, which has fascinated people for 300 years. 
The exhibition has been organised in collaboration with the Archives of the Republic of Slovenia.
