Technical Museum of Slovenia (Tehniški Muzej Slovenije)

It might not be the easiest to get to, but for the technically minded this museum 20km from Ljubljana in Bistra near Vrhnika is worth the journey. The sheer variety of exhibitions on display is astounding, covering the history of printing in Slovenia, agriculture, fishing, hunting, forestry, woodwork, electricity, textiles and of course motor vehicles, there's something for everyone here. A permanent exhibition focuses on the first century of motoring in the country, containing within the oldest preserved car in Slovenia, dating back to 1906.

Sundays see children’s workshops, Tesla’s experiments, as well as demonstrations and much more, allowing children and adults alike the chance to truly feel the technological spirit of the past. The museum's renovated permanent exhibitions include the one of classic vehicles primarily used by the former Yugoslav President Tito, and another covering the History of the Textile Industry in Slovenia, while an intriguing temporary exhibition titled All About Sound will be on display until December 3, 2017.
