Slovenia Things to Do: 544 reviews and 992 photos

This fantastic museum is house is Koper?s grandest palace ? the Belgramoni-Tacco Palace ? which was built in the early 17th century. The museum, founded in 1911, charts the history of the town and surrounding area with artefacts from Pre-Roman tribes, Roman remains from the conquest of Istra in 178/177BC, medieval history such as statues and stone sculptures to paintings dating from the 16th-18th centuries. There is also a new building at the back in the courtyard which charts the struggle of the local population in the 19th and 20th century when the area passed into many hands before finally being part of Yugoslavia and then as an independent nation. The building has a vast collection that includes uniforms, stamps, money, photos etc. There are leaflets in English to explain everything as the info is in Slovenian and Italian. More pictures can be found in my travelogues.

Open: Tues-Fri 10am-6pm, Sat & Sun 9am-1pm. Closed Mondays. Admission: 400SIT.

Address: Kidričeva 19
