Aspectos Relevantes / Relevant aspects: National Museum of Contemporary History is dedicated to the twentieth century, which was one of the most turbulent periods in the history of Slovenia. During this period, Slovenia was under the rule of many different countries and forms of government. It survived two World Wars, participated in the technology revolution and, in 1991, after the Ten-Day War, Slovenia gained its independence and became a sovereign state. It connects the fates of 20th century Slovenian people and provides visitors with answers to questions about their own identity in modern times. The Museum also serves as a gathering place for groups of all kinds and as a place for dialogue and reflection. It not only answers questions, but it also raises questions and assists visitors in their search for answers, forming a type of partnership in which the Museum serves as a dynamic, innovative and welcoming establishment.

Historia / History: The National Museum of Contemporary History of Slovenia was established in 1948 as the National Liberation Museum of the LRS, which was in 1962 renamed the Museum of the People's Revolution. In 1994, three years after the independence of Slovenia, it was renamed the Museum of Contemporary History, and extended its collection policy to the period from the beginning of the 20th century to modern times. Since 2001, the National Museum of Contemporary History of Slovenia is a national museum that preserves the cultural heritage of the 20th century. The baroque mansion, housing the museum, was constructed in 1752 by Count Leopold Karl Lamberg, and is now a cultural monument of national significance.
