Established on 1 May 1958, the Maribor National Liberation Museum is housed in a burgher villa, commissioned in the mid 1890s by the Maribor entrepreneur Gustav Scherbaum. The museum's collections are dedicated to the 20th and 21st century history of the North-East region of Slovenia with a particular emphasis on Maribor. It plays an active role in the local community and offers an extensive and engaging educational programme, often dealing with current issues. Since May 2012 the museum manages also the Museum of Photography in Maribor.

Collections and exhibitions

The current permanent displays deal with the local recent history ranging from the period between the wars (Maribor is ours!), the World War II (Sssh! Maribor 1941–1945) to economy and industrial heritage (A Monument to Maribor's Industry – Industrial Maribor in 20th Century). The temporary exhibitions are often developed in co-operation with similar Slovenian and international institutions. The rich collections are presented also on the website.
