Museum consists of 2 parts, one in an older building and one in a more modern setting. The layout is a bit confusing and we almost missed the newer part as there was no clear directions. That said the artwork was interesting and varied but there was a bit of confusion as to whether the ljubiana card gave free entry.... More

The National Gallery of Slovenia is within walking distance of Old Town and Preseren Square, perhaps a 15-20 minutes walk. I love museums and found this one particularly appealing for its focus on Slovenian artists. The Neoclassical structure with its grand foyer and stairway has a more modern structure attached at the back. It's like seeing two museums in one.... More

Spacious layout of classic paintings, mostly by local artists. The cafe is a nice place to be at, light music playing with large ancient water fountain as decoration in a modern backdrop.

A good range of works obviously focused mainly on early works but did have some interesting modern pieces.

We spend a very nice afternoon in the National Gallery. We were impressed of the good Slovene painters and also we appreciated the Vugrinec Collection Croatian Modern Art, also impressive Admission 7 or 10 € depending what you would like to see, and we paid for "pensioner" only 6 €, very nice price.

The building is very impressive and unusual in Ljubljana. Some of the art works were nicely representing Slovenian art, but other than that not much to see. We expected for more.

The whole thing is very chic and pretty and the art displayed very good. It collects the best works from all of the best Slovenian painters (and they were pretty good!). Now they also added a great coffee/dessert shop at the end of it for a nice refreshment before heading out to explore some more of the city.
