Admirable space will definitely amaze you with its collection of international and Slovenian works of art. You should spend an afternoon in gallery and learn about painters over the centuries. The biggest attraction is certainly Robba Fountain in the renovated area where you can sit down and drink a cup of coffee or eat a piece of cake. Cameras are... More

Spoiler alert, there is no sign saying you aren't allowed to take pictures. They will just come up to you and you you are a jerk

national gallery is a gem of slovenian culture history per se (just opened after renovation), not to mention it's full of slovenian art gems. the room exhibiting art from 1870 until nowadays it's a must and i do strongly recommend ivana kobilica, jurij šubic, rihard jakopič, ferdo vesel, matija jama, ivan grohar and andrej sterner they have also a room...

This museum gives a good overview of Slovenian art over the centuries. You can take photos in the lobby but unfortunately not in the galleries. So I have to rely on their web site. What I didn't notice was art that made me think of Slovenia, it all reminded me of things I'd seen elsewhere. Croatia which had visited had... More

This is a great collection of the European and Slovenian art. It is well displayed and described. I did visit it at the end of the day (Saturday) and there was not so many people. There are lockers, cloak room, nice coffee shop. Highly recommended.

The National Gallery of Slovenia, a fine bright well renovated building with an impressive entrance hall is situated at the edge of the lovely Tivoli park. The permanent collection is of modest proportions and a high standard, especiall, the Medieval and the 19th century art, impressionist and social realist. Pleasant ambiance.

Jama, Jakopič, Grohar, Šubic, Petkovšek, Kobilica were Slovenia's best painters. National galery is worth a visit for them alone.

Well presented permanent collection of Slovenian paintings and other artifacts through the centuries. Very user friendly. The current special exhibit of art that had been shown in the former Yugoslav embassies was also interesting.

The museum itself is a wonderfully modern building, in a glass annexe. There are free guided English tours, with a great explanation of the various pieces of art's position within Slovenian history. But, fundamentally, there isn't much of artistic value here, especially if one is used to the art museums of Paris, Amsterdam and Italy. Much of the art is... More

It is a nice collection of statues of woman, famous man, love embraces, and some common scenes. If you like statues, it definitely worth a visit. The painting section of the museum was small & prohibited photography.
