This museum was under renovation when my trio of travelers visited in October 2013, so I don't believe the whole museum was open to the public. However, we still had a wonderful visit! We started with the European Art exhibit. This is a small but excellent collection of European art from some well known and relatively well-known artists. There is... More

I was looking for the modern art gallery, but came into here by accident, and I was really pleased that I did. The range of exhibits, going back to some stunning pieces of religious imagery from 700 years ago, was really good. There were many really interesting works, and it was a highlight of my tru to Ljubljana.

There is a separation between the Slovenian painters and the European, (two parts of the Gallery) I'd actually like to have seen them mixed as the influences were very similar. Art of this general age and type isn't my favourite (my preference being for modern 20th Century) however they do have some... More

It's a wonderful museum of national artwork. There is always a standard display of slovenian artwork and european painters, plus there is usually a special display (located in the glass part of the gallery) that changes after a while. I especially like the fact, that the rooms in which the art is displayed, are big and roomy, and give such... More

Nice demonstration of national artwork. Although I felt like there should have been more details on the artists and artwork on show. As a non-arty person this would have benefitted greatly.
