No trip to Ljubljana would be complete without a visit to this magnificent museum. The audio guides are wonderful and we learned so much about Slovenian artists. Fantastic!!!!!

I'd like to strongly recommend visiting Narodna galerija (the National Gallery of Slovenia). The more modern works really help you get a sense of Slovenian art, but the most striking thing for me is the large number of women present. I'd estimate that about 40%...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.

Not knowing a single Slovenian artist, we chose the right place to find out about them. All, or virtually all the works in this attractively-laid out gallery are by Slovenian artists. There were enough paintings that held the eye, but the highlights for me were...More

Unfortunately one of the sides was closed during my visit for a new installation. Art history buffs would love this museum. They have works dating back to the 15th century. It's a good rainy day activity.

A very nice collection of artwork set in stunning buildings, an older one and a much more contemporary extension. At the time we arrived as it opened we were the people and had some of the gorgeous galleries to ourselves. Very interesting, i would go...More
