Slovenia tourism: The unique Plecnik House is opened

Written by editor

After a two-year-long complete renovation, the Plečnik House is reopening its doors to visitors on September 24, 2015.

After a two-year-long complete renovation, the Plečnik House is reopening its doors to visitors on September 24, 2015. The conservators finished cleaning the house’s museum artifacts, which are now returning to their original spots inside the building, where the architect worked for more than three decades. A permanent exhibition dedicated to Plečnik’s life and work is also being prepared in the newly-acquired spaces.

Visitors to the renovated house will now also be able to visit the new permanent exhibition, which presents the work of Plečnik in three capitals; Vienna, Prague and, mainly, Ljubljana. The exhibition is also devoted to Plečnik’s life from being an apprentice in his father’s woodworking workshop to becoming a respected professor at the Faculty of Architecture in Ljubljana and a winner of numerous state and international awards and recognitions.

Next to the permanent exhibition, the house is also becoming an important study centre, with a special room intended for all students of Plečnik’s work. Researches will also have access to the original Plečnik’s plans and designs.

New programmes are also coming to the renovated house. Interesting lectures, events, temporary exhibitions will be held at the house on a regular basis, while we have also refreshed our school and family programmes. An exhibition about the renovation of the house will already be present at the opening, while in November we will present a publication and a film about the renovation.

An important bit of information is also that the regular visiting schedule of the Plečnik House remains unchanged. The house can only accept smaller groups (up to 7 people at every full hour), as the rooms are not suitable for larger groups of people. Visits to the new permanent exhibition will be individual and possible during opening hours of the museum (from Tuesday to Sunday, 10.00 a.m. to 6.00 p.m.).
