The activities of the Museum of Architecture and Design have expanded sincethe move to the Fu
ine Castle. The museum now incorporates 6 departments:the Department of Historical Architecture in Slovenia, the Department of Contemporary Slovene Architecture, the Department of Industrial Design, theDepartment of Visual Communications, the Department of Photography, andthe Department of Educational Activities. The museum also houses a specialisedlibrary.The museum manages also a part of the Ple
nik Collection in situ, at Ple
nik House Karunova ulica 4. From 1988 to 2004 the museum also managed theJakopi
Gallery, which is today managed by the Museum and Galleries of Ljubljana.
The Museum of Architecture and Design systematically collects, stores, studies,and presents material at permanent and temporary exhibitions. The display 
The Architect Jo
e Ple
nik 1872–1957 
is based on a major exhibition of the same titleat the Georges Pompidou Centre in Paris in 1986. Special themed historicalexhibitions include
The Modern Classic Arne Jacobsen 1902–1971: A Centenary Exhibition
17th-Century Architecture in Slovenia
(2006) and
18th-Century Architecture in Slovenia
(2007). Beside periodical exhibitions of Slovene architecture, the museum also hosts regular exhibitions of internationalarchitecture. Such as the exhibition
 Beyond Everydayness: Theatre Architecture in Central Europe
which was organised by the network of CentralEuropean theatre and architecture organisations participating in the TACEproject, including the National Theatre Museum of Slovenia. Among contemporary design exhibitions the exhibition
 Niko Kralj: TheUnknown Famous Designer
was quite a break-through: it showcased thearchives, sketches, photographs, prototypes and final products of the world-renowned Slovenian industrial designerNiko Kralj(1921–2013), including thefamous Rex armchair, Lupina series, 4455 and modular system furnitureFutura, Savinja, Javor, Konstrukta, as well as the Mosquito chair, which wasdesigned as early as 1953, but due to the complexity of its manufacture, it only entered regular production in 2012.
