I took some time to visit three museums at the same yard. Best for me is Slovenski etnografski muzej with real presentation of ethnography from the area and nice souvenir shop and good little cafe. Second is National museum and third this Museum of contemporary...More

delightful modern building, obviously dedicated to modern art (paintings and sculpture mainly) - Seems to be all Slovenian, but the standard is high. fairly small gallery, so not "overwhelming". Fab café, study area. We really enjoyed our visit.

Contemporary art tends to divide opinion, with some willing to make the effort to try to understand what is going on, and others who dismiss it as rubbish, and I suspect that this museum will have that effect. Most of the displays are temporary exhibitions...More

Very few visitors in this great museum. Definitely worth a visit if you are into contemporary art. student price 2,5 euros was absolutely reasonable.

If you appreciate and enjoy contemporary art this is definitely a place you should visit. I spent about 2 hours at the museum because I read the wall labels to learn about the different artworks and artists. The explanations are given in Slovenian and English....More

I was there with my little sister, who really isn't into art and I felt quite sorry for bringing her there. We only visited the temporary exhibition since we weren't interested in the "communist art section" and I didn't really like what I saw except...More

Well worth a visit. It is deceptively large on 3 floors and has a variety of interesting often visual exhibitions. A little way out in places, but that's only to be expected from a contemporary art museum. We particularly the exhibition on the Slovenian punk...More

Been to several European museums of modern art, alone and with family. Normally each of us found few interesting pieces of work, which kids sometimes still remember and discuss. Not the case in MSUM: we left after 30 minutes, because 80% of installations is praise...More
