Narodni muzej Slovenije – Metelkova

The new venue of the National Museum of Slovenia is housed in the ex-barracks complex on Metelkova street. The transformation of the one-hundred-year-old barracks complex, comprising the Slovenian Ethnographic Museum, The Museum of Contemporary Art, The Slovenian Cinemateque and the Institute for the Protection of Cultural Heritage, was designed by the local Architectural Bureau Groleger and Miroslav Kvas. In the glass-clad extension the Museum building has a string of restoration workshops as well as a lecture room, while the exhibition galleries are on the ground floor (for temporary exhibitions and displays) and on the first and the second floors the permanent exhibition History and Arts Collections.
