Slovenian Museum of Natural History

Exhibition concept Slovenian Museum of Natural History, Ljubljana/Slovenia, 2010 Competition entry, second prize (a first prize wasn't awarded) In July 2010, the Slovenian Museum of Natural History launched an open competition, looking for an exhibition concept that would suit its planned new construction near the Botanical Gardens of Ljubljana. The focus was set on unconventional and efficient solutions using classical and contemporary exhibition technology. Working for (and with) Hüttinger we developed both stimulating settings for the different collections (incorporating traditional and interactive exhibits), and a new type of museum encounter. In the so called expert zone, scientists and visitors meet each other amongst accessible storage spaces full of specimen and open labs with research tools. For the first time visitors get the full look and feel of the museum!
