The Sports Museum preserves the tangible and intangible sports heritage and presents and researches Slovenia’s sporting past. It commemorates the most significant achievements and other milestones of Slovenian athletes, sports workers, and other individuals, as well as National team and club/team successes. In accordance with Slovenian legislation and international guidelines and recommendations, it provides a public service as the central sports museum in Slovenia. Through its collections of sports heritage items, it is committed to collecting, organising, preserving, studying, keeping, understanding, interpreting, and thoroughly presenting the Slovenian sports heritage. It encourages its visitors and the public to preserve and protect the sports heritage by giving advice on how to preserve it themselves or by donating materials and objects to the Museum.


The vision of the Sports Museum is to become the leading national institution in the field of sports history and heritage and to become a point of reference in the international arena. Through our work, we want to contribute to the development of culture, museology, and the national identity of Slovenians.


The Museum’s mission is to preserve, record, collect, protect, document, study, interpret, present, and promote the tangible and intangible Slovenian sports heritage and the history of sport. In doing so, we contribute to the development of Slovenian sport by developing positive attitudes towards sport and the past, encouraging individuals and communities to take part in competitive and recreational sports, and strengthening local and national consciousness. Last but not least, we take care of the collective memory by not letting it fade.
