On top of a Mountain, Close to the Sky
14. April - 10. July
The touring exhibition of the Slovenian Alpine Museum, part of the Gornjesavski muzej Jesenice, “On top of a Mountain, Close to the Sky” presents the most common light phenomena that we encounter on mountain trails.
The authors of the exhibition, Natalija Štular, curator-educator at the Slovenian Alpine Museum, and Goran Ilič, professor of physics, want to remind visitors of the beauties of Slovenia, emphasizing the unique power of nature, especially light, which shapes our life. The aim of the exhibition is to give simple and understandable explanations and demonstrations of the most common optical phenomena that might be encountered in the mountains, and the tools nature uses in their creation. A few simple physical experiments and fun facts from the history of mountaineering have been added for better understanding.
On display until 10. 7. 2022.
