The Museum of Contemporary Art Metelkova (MSUM) opened in November 2011 in the renovated building of the former barracks complex on Metelkova Street – a complex which has grown into a new museum quarter, encompassing also the Slovene Ethnographic Museum and the National Museum of Slovenia - Metelkova. Together with the Moderna galerija (MG) (Museum of Modern Art), the new museum forms part of MG+MSUM, the acronym for Moderna galerija plus Muzej sodobne umetnosti Metelkova. The venue presents the permanent collection of Eastern European art, while the second floor is dedicated to curatorial projects and was the venue for the U3 Triennial of Contemporary Slovene Arts. The new building houses also the Moderna galerija library, the museum's extensive Modern art archive, a translation and publications department, and a conservation-renovation department.
