It is a lovely small gallery that can easily be enjoyed in an hour. I really enjoyed several of the whimsical pieces such as the perpetually moving rods. Don't miss it! they have a nice comfortable café inside & outside.

This museum features modern and contemporary art. I took pictures of what I thought was interesting. Some works don't resonate with me because I am a philistine and I just see splotches of paint while others see symbolism.

Appriciated that the museum didn´t shy away from what was made during the communist rule.Watched the loop with Laibach several times. The special exhibition was Andraz Salamun when I was there. Unfortunately without much information in the rooms,.
