Technical Museum [Tehniški Muzej]

Technical Museum
A bit of a drive to get to this one, but if tractors, fishing rods, tools of every possible size, shape and application, guns, odd metal boxes that possible work on steam and thousands of other similar contraptions and devices tickle your trumpet then get thee to the tiny village of Bistra, or rather its lovely old castle and grounds. Other points of particular interest include an eccentric collection of Tito’s old cars and a permanent exhibition dedicated to printing and the written word in Slovenia, including an interesting hotchpotch of machines and tools used in the printing process. Sundays see the place turn into a working museum, complete with demonstrations of lots of sharp, fast-turning and essentially dangerous tools. Pack your protective goggles and head 30km southwest out of Ljubljana on the main A1 highway and take the Vrhnika turnoff. The museum is a few kilometres south of here along road 642.

Admission €2.40-4.
