Exhibition on the 10th anniversary of the death of Dr Janez Drnovšek
Open from 23 February 2018 to 5 May 2018 at the National Museum of Slovenia – Metelkova

Dr Janez Drnovšek, a statesman and a cosmopolitan, impressed Slovenia and the world with his quiet charisma, his persistence, simplicity, and courage. He was different from most of the politicians; his strong belief in what was right or wrong informed his life. His bipartisanship and support given to the fight for a better world left an indelible mark on society.

This February marks ten years from the death of a great statesman, Dr Janez Drnovšek. The exhibition at the National Museum of Slovenia aims to comprehensively present his unique personality. It includes three different periods that defined the life of Dr Drnovšek: the chairmanship of the Collective Presidency of the Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia; the four governments of the Republic of Slovenia, a time Slovenia was considered one of the more successful countries in Europe and when the country joined the European Union and NATO; and finally the presidency of the Republic of Slovenia.

The exhibition and the memorial symposium are held under the honorary patronage of the President of the Republic of Slovenia Borut Pahor.


THE PAST UNDER THE MICROSCOPE. Scientific Analyses in Museums

Temporary exhibition
Open from 25 October 2017 to 30 April 2018 at the National Museum of Slovenia 
Why are we attracted to old objects? Perhaps because what we see in them is a life we did not live ourselves, making us forget about the transience of our own lives. 
There is a story hidden in every object. But the object can tell its story only if we find out what it is, what its function is, who made it, where and when it was made, what its composition is, what material it is made of, and whether it is an original or perhaps a forgery.

Gostujoča razstava Pokrajinskega muzeja Ptuj – Ormož

Na ogled od 9. januarja 2018 do 30. aprila 2018, Metelkova

Didaktično zasnovana razstava Pokrajinskega muzeja Ptuj – Ormož razkriva vpogled v obrt celjskega baročnega orglarskega mojstra Janeza Frančiška Janečka. Mojster češkega porekla je deloval v obdobju, ko se je močno razmahnilo opremljanje cerkva z orglami, plemstvo pa je za grajske kapele in potrebe domačega muziciranja naročalo salonske pozitive.
