As part of the informal holiday Ta veseli dan kulture, which we mark each year in Slovenia on 3 December, the birthday of poet France PreŇ°eren, we will be offering a special programme for children and adults at the Banka Slovenije Museum and exhibition room Mala galerija.

On Saturday 3 December 2022, children will be able to join us at the Banka Slovenije Museum at 11 am for specially designed thematic workshops. What we will offer includes a didactic puzzle game of occasional coins that will help them understand more closely certain important events and figures in Slovenian history, they will be able to write a postcard from the Museum, put a Banka Slovenije stamp on it and also post it, while those a little older will have the chance to use study sheets to take an independent educational stroll through the Museum, and they will also make up a map of Europe with us and in a didactic way learn about the euro area, its members and the various monetary units in Europe. Everyone can also view the most attractive exhibits - ranging from a cash machine (ATM), old piggy banks and money in Slovenia to a chair made of shredded euro banknotes, and bar made of gold. These exhibits and a more in-depth look at the tasks and operation of Banka Slovenije will also be available for adult visitors, who can take a guided tour at 4 pm.

We are accepting reservations for the children's workshops and guided tour of the Banka Slovenije Museum up until 30 November 2022 online at [email protected]. Do join us!

We are also organising a special programme for children at the Mala galerija Banke Slovenije, which is currently hosting an exhibition of UL ALUO photography students entitled Odboj (Bounce). This exhibition looks in a practical way at the creative process and invites visitors to enter into it and into a relationship with the photographers and exhibition itself. We especially invite children to the workshop at 4 pm, where they will be able to make simple casts and photograms. Registration is not required. On Saturday 3 December 2022, children are therefore also invited to join us at 4 pm in the Mala galerija Banke Slovenije.
