Located within a group of museums near Tivoli park, is this palace like structure, housing pieces from the Middle Ages to the early 20th century, it is easy to spend a couple of hours here perusing the art, having the city card makes a visit to these attractions very affordable.

My favorite museum in Ljubljana is pretty big and offers a great immersion into Slovenian art, hosting major Slovenian painters such as Janez Šubic, Matevž Langus, and Ivan Vavpotič, as well as European artists. The cost of the ticket is 10 EUR, but you definitely get a lot back for this amount. I spent about 2 hours on different floors and appreciated the way the museum was organized, the art displayed, the calmness of the staff, and their professionalism as well.

A beautiful gallery - the layout was slightly confusing to me (only now do I realise I must have missed chunks of the paintings on display - I may well return and persevere).

The religious art - particularly statuary was really impressive - beautifully displayed and comprehensive - it may not appeal to most perhaps - but it was a highlight for me.

The cafe / fountain court was lovely and the nice lady serving coffee (and tasty margarita pizza) was very welcoming.

The new exhibition of 18C charcoal drawings was interesting. Ive read that the old master paintings were not of the first order - I know what the other critical reviewer meant - but the displays in those galleries are still worth a visit

on balance a lovely gallery - clean : bright : friendly ✔️

Beautiful museum with a mix of art styles- religious and secular of various years. I enjoyed this museum. It was just a bit awkward how when you entered a room the staff follows you glaring.

Soooooooo boring. Nothing really interesting here other than the nice building. Layout is pretty neat hence the additional stars. Again, art is so subjective but I have to say there’s nothing special compared to many other galleries. Go only if you need some place to kill time. At least it’s quiet here.

I enjoyed this museum. It is on a scale that is doable without being overwhelming. I also enjoyed the cafe. I was not familiar with a lot of the artists as the focus was Slovenian artists, but that did not stop me from enjoying it.

Reserve your time and visit Ljubljana if you are near enough till July 30. Ljubljana is a place for traditional art prints from 1955 till today. They just organised a new exhibition of Rembrandt after 23 years. Real visitor will need two hours for a visit in the National gallery in Ljubljana. They got nearly 50 original prints of Rembrandt from Amsterdam (Rembrandt’s house). You may have a close look to lines, figures, light and shades of different etchings. They range from self-portraits to Biblical scenes. This is special opportunity for adoration of Rembrandt without tourist crowds. Just you and works of art. Perfect.

The old building itself is a nice art piece. But the collection of old masters which is housed there is mediocre at best. The collection of Slovenian artists in the new wing is very good though.

Specialists prepared new exhibition about Matej Sternen. Less known painter and restorer was really perfect in using colours and he left us many portraits of beautiful women in clothes or without dresses. It is nice to visit this exhibition. Permanent exhibition is also nice and you wu+ill need at least two hours to walk around.
Gallery and the works of art there are the best selection of Slovenian art from Gothic to contemporary.

A nice place to spend a rainy day. Included as part of the Ljubljana Card (definitely got my money's worth). The art was fine, but the building itself was exceptional. In a part of the city where there are multiple museums in close proximity.
