Specialists prepared new exhibition about Matej Sternen. Less known painter and restorer was really perfect in using colours and he left us many portraits of beautiful women in clothes or without dresses. It is nice to visit this exhibition. Permanent exhibition is also nice and you wu+ill need at least two hours to walk around.
Gallery and the works of art there are the best selection of Slovenian art from Gothic to contemporary.

My favorite museum in Ljubljana is pretty big and offers a great immersion into Slovenian art, hosting major Slovenian painters such as Janez Šubic, Matevž Langus, and Ivan Vavpotič, as well as European artists. The cost of the ticket is 10 EUR, but you definitely get a lot back for this amount. I spent about 2 hours on different floors and appreciated the way the museum was organized, the art displayed, the calmness of the staff, and their professionalism as well.

Soooooooo boring. Nothing really interesting here other than the nice building. Layout is pretty neat hence the additional stars. Again, art is so subjective but I have to say there’s nothing special compared to many other galleries. Go only if you need some place to kill time. At least it’s quiet here.

A nice place to spend a rainy day. Included as part of the Ljubljana Card (definitely got my money's worth). The art was fine, but the building itself was exceptional. In a part of the city where there are multiple museums in close proximity.

Beautiful building and a very nice collection of paintings. The first floor I liked more than the base floor. The religious section was not for me but the landscapes op slovenia on the first floor and the beautiful hall was worth the visit.

Beautiful museum with a mix of art styles- religious and secular of various years. I enjoyed this museum. It was just a bit awkward how when you entered a room the staff follows you glaring.

Beautiful and a very interesting building. A nice mixture of traditional and new. Some of the art work was really interesting. Particularly the work of XX century Slovenian painters.

Dear Tijana M, Thank you for your visit! The 20th century art is the favorite part of the exhibition for many visitors, and the painting Summer/Poletje by lady painter Ivana Kobilca (also included in the audio guide and free Nexto application), was chosen as the most popular work of art included in the permanent exhibition, and just looking at it cold winter mornings seem to be less cold! Kind regards

This Museum, which is housed in a splendid building with some good interiors, it also had some interesting early works, but parts of it could be seen quite quickly.

The national gallery is a quality museum and worth a visit, especially for those who are artists or enjoy the arts. My favorite galleries were those which featured impressionistic and post-impressionistic Slovenian artists. The dates on these works followed similar periods in western Europe, but showed that very good artists were working in Slovenia at this time in fresh, new styles.

Before our visit to Ljubljana we had never heard of Ivana Kobilca. However, a poster and a promotional magazine caught our eye. We were not disappointed. Ivana Kobilca was a very versatile and widely travelled painter who displayed extraordinary talent. We were impressed with the way the exhibition had been set up and the insights given in the descpription. A very worthwhile visit!
