The International Centre of Graphic Arts is a specialized museum and producer of printed and contemporary art, based on the heritage of the Biennial of Graphic Arts and 20th century art of printing. MGLC was established on 25 December 1986 by the city of Ljubljana, upon the initiative of the longtime head of the Ljubljana Biennial of Graphic Arts and director of MGLC, dr. Zoran Kržišnik. It has been the job of MGLC from the outset to perform a number of activities that are interrelated and complementary in their nature. It takes care of the extensive collection of prints and artists' books produced after the Second World War. Works from the collection are available to view in the Study Room and are accompanied by a library accessible to the public, both by appointment. The institution's most recognizable activity is the Biennial of Graphic Arts, which is known as the world's oldest graphic arts event (1955-).

Nice manor house in the middel of Tivoli park, average coffeehouse, and terrible presentatioin of nice prints. You can look just at reflection of windows during the day. No special explanation, except in a room on the left with nice decoration and workshop for children. The main goal, looking at works of art is not possible.

I don't know why this is really a museum. There are two other better (but not great) modern art museums in Ljubljana. The exhibition space is very small... we saw maybe 30-40 pieces total. There were no handouts/flyers/guidance... we were just told to go upstairs. For a family, it isn't worth the euros. In fact, unless you have a special... More

I visited it during the art biennale, the location is great in the heart of the Tivoli park, workshops are available which makes the experience even more interesting but the pieces displayed are worth visiting too.
