PATHS OF THE SAMURAI. Japanese arms and martial culture in Slovenia

Open from 31 May to 5 Novemer 2017 at the National Museum of Slovenia – Metelkova 
 
The figure of the Japanese warrior – the samurai – his weapons, fighting skills, and worldview have excited our imagination for at least a century and a half – since the land of the rising sun opened itself to the rest of the world after a long period of isolation.

BARON GAUTSCH (1914–2014). Prva žrtev prve svetovne vojne v Istri

There are no translations available.

Občasna razstava
Na ogled 
od 30. junija do 24. septembra 2017 na Metelkovi

Potniški parnik avstrijskega Lloyda »Baron Gautsch« je v začetku prve svetovne vojne iz Kotorja v Trst prevažal dopustnike, družine in uradnike. Na poti med Kotorjem in Trstom je 13. avgusta 1914 zapeljal v prijateljsko minsko polje in potonil šest navtičnih milj zahodno od Brionov. Pomorska nesreča, v kateri je izgubilo življenje okoli 330 ljudi, velja za jadranski Titanik. Gostujoča razstava Zgodovinskega in pomorskega muzeja Istre iz Pulja prikazuje predmete, ki jih je mednarodna skupina potapljačev pobrala iz razbitine pred obalo Rovinja, med katerimi so osebni predmeti in deli ladijske opreme. Lokacija razbitine je danes priljubljena točka za potapljače.

DR JANEZ DRNOVŠEK

Exhibition on the 10th anniversary of the death of Dr Janez Drnovšek
Open from 23 February 2018 to 5 May 2018 at the National Museum of Slovenia – Metelkova

Dr Janez Drnovšek, a statesman and a cosmopolitan, impressed Slovenia and the world with his quiet charisma, his persistence, simplicity, and courage. He was different from most of the politicians; his strong belief in what was right or wrong informed his life. His bipartisanship and support given to the fight for a better world left an indelible mark on society.

This February marks ten years from the death of a great statesman, Dr Janez Drnovšek. The exhibition at the National Museum of Slovenia aims to comprehensively present his unique personality. It includes three different periods that defined the life of Dr Drnovšek: the chairmanship of the Collective Presidency of the Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia; the four governments of the Republic of Slovenia, a time Slovenia was considered one of the more successful countries in Europe and when the country joined the European Union and NATO; and finally the presidency of the Republic of Slovenia.

The exhibition and the memorial symposium are held under the honorary patronage of the President of the Republic of Slovenia Borut Pahor.

KELTI S SMARAGDNIH GORA

There are no translations available.

Na ogled od 2. januarja do 31. marca 2016 v Narodnem muzeju Slovenije – Metelkova

Razstava prikazuje arheološko dediščino »keltskih gorjanov« v širšem zgodovinskem in geografskem okviru. Popelje nas v zadnja stoletja pred našim štetjem, v hriboviti svet predalpskega in alpskega sveta italijanskega Veneta, Karnije, Furlanije, avstrijske Koroške, Posočja in Krasa v času, ko so ga dosegli keltski bojevniki in konjeniki. Ti so se ustalili na najizrazitejših strateških točkah z nadzorom nad rečnimi dolinami. Tam so si uredili grobišča, naravnim silam in božanstvom vojne so darovali orožje in konjsko opremo. Začeli so kovati denar, trgovali so z Rimljani in se z njimi bojevali.
Kelti so razvili tudi povsem nov, samosvoj umetnostni slog okraševanja nakita, noše, orožja, konjske opreme ter posodja.

Ob razstavi je izšel tudi vodnik.

Razstava je bila najprej na ogled v Arheološkem muzeju iz Zuglia, Italija, od 20. junija do 31. oktobra 2015.
