Editor's review

To say that this museum doesn't glorify the culture of smoking would be like saying there is no evidence that smoking is actually bad for you. Still, like it's subject, there is something slightly seductive about this museum and its celebration of the tradition of tobacco and smoking in Ljubljana. Housed in the former warehouse of the Tobacna Ljubljana factory, the museum's exhibitions chronologically follow the history of tobacco, from Columbus' discovery of the plant in America 500 years ago to the develop of the European tobacco industry to the present. Special attention is given to the significance of the Ljubljana factory, the lifestyle of its workers and the production process of every tobacco product imaginable. An impressive display of various pipes, tobacco boxes, cigarette cases and holders throughout history is particularly sexy. Since manufacturing ceased in 2004, the main business of Tobacna has been the marketing and sales of tobacco products. Think there's a gift shop? [Open every first Wednesday and third Thursday of the month from 10:00 to 18:00. Wow, it's free!]
