Lovely interior design makes for an enjoyable visit even if the installations and artworks aren't your priority. Entrance is 5 euros but covered with the Ljubljana Card. Really enjoyed the photo exhibition on Slovenian Monuments especially as I was about to spend a day in...More

delightful modern building, obviously dedicated to modern art (paintings and sculpture mainly) - Seems to be all Slovenian, but the standard is high. fairly small gallery, so not "overwhelming". Fab café, study area. We really enjoyed our visit.
