The exhibition presents individual structures and occurrences from the Middle Ages until the 18th century in Maribor and its surroundings (trading, defence, religion, plague, fires, city government, crafts), which are illustrated by maquettes together with the museum’s artefacts. A reconstruction of a smoke chamber and guesthouse is on display, as well as knights’ armour that visitors can try on. The exhibition is situated on the ground floor of the castle’s Bastille, which was the defensive tower of the city from the mid 16th century and was built under the supervision of the architect Domenico dell’Allio. The exhibition also displays the consolidation of the defensive walls, which was led by dell’Allio, owing to attacks by the Turks, as well as older arms and armour from the museum’s collection.
