 A free parking for cars and buses is available for museum visitors at a public bus station (AP Stična) just next to the monastery. Cars can as well park at the parking lot right infront of the Basilica of the Sorrowful Mother of God.

There are two ways to get to the museum. You can walk from the bus stop up and follow the stream till you reach the first bridge in front of today's main entrance to the monastery. After crossing the first bridge you will reach the inner courtyard. The entrance to the museum will be on your right.

Another way is to follow the stream all the way to the upper bridge (second bridge) and walk across. Now you will see the museum information column and the main entrance to the museum on your left.
