The Museum of Modern History in Ljubljana is the central institution for research into the contemporary history of Slovenians from 1914 until today. The historical material spans the following periods: the First World War (1914-1918), the interwar period (1918-1941), the Second World War (1941-1945), the period of socialism (1945-1990) and the period of independent Slovenia (after 1991).
