“Great art, good aircon and well laid out”
Reviewed August 10, 2013

Fantastic building, some really interesting art from modern Slovenian art history. The staff are young, welcoming and smiley which made us feel happy. We visited on the first Sunday of the month so entrance was free. To be honest the air con in the building was a welcome rest from the intense heat outside so made us enjoy the gallery even more. Lovely sculptures outside the main entrance too. Close to the Tivoli Park which we recommend visiting whilst this side of town.

“Small but excellent collection”
Reviewed July 20, 2013

On one floor, this has two parts: a permanent and a temporary exhibition. The space is light and white and very suitable for modern art and the hanging has been done really well, with lots of space around eaach exhibit. Pictures, sculptures, installations. Signs are in English as well as Slovak. The quality of the exhibition is such that you need to allow a good 2 hours to appreciate it.

“some fabulous art in a great setting”
Reviewed May 22, 2013

We loved this gallery. There was really interesting art from Slovenia which we hadn't seen before as well as some more main stream European. There was a retrospective on as well, can't remember on whom but it was less interesting than the permanent collection. The sculpture was also excellent with some really lovely pieces set out in most of the rooms. A throughly good Gallery and well worth a vist.
