Even with part of the gallery closed off, we enjoyed our visit to this museum. There are a few original frescoes from Slovenian churches, and a lot of copies which were made to preserve what was left of others as the originals are fading where...More

The National Galley of Slovenia is a beautifully presented collection of art but, for me, the Zoran Mušič Exhibition was a revelation. In November 1944, Zoran was sent to Dachau concentration camp for anti fascist activities but managed to survive the ordeal. His modern art...More

National Gallery prepares nice surprises with special exhibitions from time to time. New exhibition about the work of painter and designer Helena Vurnik is excellent. It is mainly devoted to church art, from altars to facades. At the same time you can admire her passion...More

Really enjoyed the artworks on display in this very interesting museum/art gallery. The displays were very well organised. The paintings were mainly by Slovenian artists and were arranged by period. The building itself is beautiful.

The gallery houses many beautiful artworks from Slovenia's history. The building itself is quite stunning, and the collections are well worth exploring. We spent a very happy couple of hours here for a very modest entry fee. Note: closed on Mondays.
