Activities for Secondary School groups in Bistra


As the museum is, with its abundance of various artefacts, very extensive both in content and size, we advise you to limit your visit to only a few collections. Leave some for your next visit. Guided groups are limited to 25 persons. Guided tours for school groups are 90 minutes long, their duration can be reduced by request.
Prior reservations for guided tours are mandatory and must be done at least a week before visiting. Guided tours can be combined with a WORKSHOP of your choice.

The Technical Museum of Slovenia first presented the “Days of Science & Engineering” programme in 2002. This event was a collaboration between the museum and the Faculty of Electrical Engineering, and due to the huge interest from visitors as well as participating partners (faculties, associations, schools, firms) the project was extended.

The main objective is to popularise science and engineering and promote its study in young people, demonstrating the many possible applications and combining both theoretical knowledge with practice.

At the same time, we want to relate past achievements to those of today using the museum collections and offer a glimpse into the future. The Monday to Friday programme is primarily intended for school children/students and their teachers, whilst Sundays are for individuals and families who wish to become more familiar with the interesting world of science and engineering.

In 2018 and 2019, the Museum anticipates that it will host the following events: Days of Metrology and Day of Innovators (in April), Days of Electrical Engineering (in May), Days of Mechanical Engineering (in September), and Days of Physics (in October). In the TMS unit, the Museum of Post & Telecommunications, which is housed in Polhov Gradec, will also host the Days of Graphics and Days of Computer Science in November.
