Opening hours:
Tuesday - Saturday: 10:00-18:00



Great creations of small masters accompany the museum's temporary exhibitions or are linked to other topical themes. Primary school pupils are invited to take part in the event. The artworks submitted to the call for entries are on display in the museum's temporary exhibition, and all of them receive a written award for their participation.

Great Creations of Small Masters is a traditional museum education project. Castle - Tresure themefocuses on design then and now. We invited primary school pupils to try their hand at designing a logo for a children's museum, or to draw a design that best represents a museum for children. The call for entries and the invitation to participate were sent to primary schools and published on the website of the Maribor Regional Museum.

The students created their work at home during the corona virus epidemic, and photos of their work were shared with us by their mentors. Therefore, this year, exceptionally, we are exhibiting the submitted works mostly as printed reproductions.

Some of the submissions were also posted on Facebook and Instagram.

Our invitation was answered by 79 pupils from seven primary schools and two pre-school children. The participating pupils and children are from the following primary schools and kindergartens:

Primary School Franca Rozman - Staneta Maribor

Primary School Dušan Flis Hoče

Primary School Borcev za severno mejo Maribor

Primary School Leon Štukelj Maribor

Primary School Prežihovega Voranca Maribor

Primary School Pohorskega Odreda Slovenska Bistrica

Primary School Mladika Ptuj

Printed reproductions of the submitted works will be on display from the 10th of June until the 31st of August 2020 on the ground floor of the castle tower at the Maribor Regional Museum.

You are cordially invited!
