NLB bank owns a rich cultural heritage. In the past, it regularly supported the production, development and promotion of Slovene fine arts by purchasing works, thus creating an extensive Art Collection of Slovene Fine Arts of the 20th and 21st centuries. They have preserved many items related to money, banking and banking practices, thus creating a unique banking Museum collection for Slovenia. Due to its exceptional importance for the country, the Ministry of Culture of the Republic of Slovenia declared both collections in 2018 a national treasure of the Republic of Slovenia.
Bankarium, Slovenian Banking Museum, has opened its doors. Supported by NLB bank, the museum depicts the banking heritage of the Slovene lands from 1820 to the present day, presents most common bank practises and shares financial knowledge.
