Concierge.com's insider take:
This well-curated collection of photographs, artifacts, and amazing displaysincluding a life-size World War I soldiers' trenchilluminate Slovenian history and culture over the past 100 years. The variety of presentations is staggering, from exhibits on the communist-era economy and its ever-rising prices to video installations on the interwar period and the damage wrought by the struggle for independence. The building itself is also a significant draw: The stately Baroque mansion was built in the mid 18th century for a local count.
