The Slovene Ethnographic Museums is a museum “about people, for people”, a museum of cultural identities, the link between the past and the present, between our own and other cultures, between the natural world and civilisation. The museum preserves, documents, researches and presents collections of material, social and spiritual culture from Slovene and equally important non-European countries.

Slovenia hosted the Romano Chon festival which aims to remind the public of the fight against intolerance, prejudice and exclusion of the largest minority in Europe.
