Activities for adults in TMS in Bistra


Since the museum is very large, both content- and space-wise, we advise you to take a look only at a few collections during one visit, and viewing the others on the next one. Up to 25 people can be in the guided group at once. The guided tour usually takes 2 hours, we perform classical guided tour of museum collections and temporary exhibitions, but the selection of collections can be customized according to the wishes of the organizer.

For foreign visitors, a guide is available in English, German, Croatian, Serbian and Italian language. The reservations for group visits and programmes must be made at least one week before the visit.

We also organize guided tour for individual visitors in the opening hours of the museum. You can make a reservation no later than two business days before your visit to Slovenia. The entrance fee is the same as for groups. In the winter time, when the museum is closed, it is not possible to organize a guided tour for individuals, but only for groups by prior arrangement.

Guided tour  35 €/group, 50 €/group in foreign language
Thematical guided tour 15 €/group in Slovene language
Guided tour for visualy impared 35 €/group in Slovene language

When making a reservation, you need to indicate the exact time of your arrival and attend the appointment at the agreed time. In the event of unforeseen circumstances that cause delay, please call +386 1 750 66 70 as soon as possible.

DIZIT – Days of Science and Technical engineering

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.
