This museum features modern and contemporary art. I took pictures of what I thought was interesting. Some works don't resonate with me because I am a philistine and I just see splotches of paint while others see symbolism.

Appriciated that the museum didn´t shy away from what was made during the communist rule.Watched the loop with Laibach several times. The special exhibition was Andraz Salamun when I was there. Unfortunately without much information in the rooms,.

I was left feeling I needed a PhD in Slovenian history to appreciate most of it, and while there were a few pieces that caught my imagination, most failed to draw me in.
