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.

Spent two hours wandering, the often empty, galleries. Nice selection of art. Could maybe link more with history of Slovenia but was worth the 7 euro entry.

Interesting collections curated by century, with a good number of very good impressionist paintings by a Slovenian artist.

Do not expect the usual array of world famous old masters, The unpretentious museum's collection is mostly national and / or regional, but well put together. And the upkeep of both the building and its interior seems to be immaculate.
