Museums west of Slovenska

The town’s leafy cultural quarter boasts several impressive museums and galleries. The grand National Museum, at Muzejska ul. 1, displays archeological finds and artefacts relevant to Slovene history. The building also houses the Natural History Museum, whose star exhibit is the only complete mammoth skeleton found in Europe. The National Gallery at Prešernova cesta 24 is rich in local medieval Gothic work, although most visitors gravitate towards the halls devoted to the Slovene Impressionists, and in particular the outstanding paintings by Ivan Grohar.
