When culture interweaves with the aroma of coffee

Visiting Slovenian galleries and museums can be a special social event, as they offer a whole host of experiences – from workshops to social spots – in addition to the exhibitions themselves. Almost every Slovenian museum has a shop inside where you can buy products related to the museum's content. Some even have their own cafés, where you can have a chat over a selected drink after visiting the museum or gallery collections. Take a look at a list of some of the best-known museum and gallery cafés, wine bars and even places to grab a bite to eat.

Where else can you have a cup of coffee in museums and galleries around Slovenia?

Many major museums and galleries in other parts of Slovenia also have their own cafés. They are more than just a place to grab a cup – they are places of socialising and art. Especially charming are museums and cafés found within castle walls.

Wine bars and restaurants

Some museums, however, do not focus just on coffee, but offer other beverages and services, such as wine bars.

Extend your visit to museums and galleries

In addition to permanent and temporary exhibitions, there is much more to experience in Slovenian galleries and museums. Many offer a variety of virtual adventures, workshops, and even escape rooms to make your experience of history, culture and art even more immersive.
