The exhibitions are e quite small, featuring various Slovak artists, but it gives you a good flavour of Slovak art movements and the write up and presentation is great. There's a really nice library as well and professor hamster is brilliant - originally designed as a tool to help teach kids about art history and get them engaging, it's also terribly entertaining for adults as well.

Although only a section of the museum is open because of extensive renovations and building, it is a lovely place to visit while in Bratislava. Entrance is free and has a warm and friendly feel to it. Main exhibits currently are on 19th Central European Impressionists and 20th century works by a Slovak artist, Weisz-Kubincan. Both exhibits were thoughtfully presented and introduced me to artists I was heretofore not knowledgeable about. Highly recommend.

The building is of a box time architecture. You can visit if you have time to spend. A good local museum.

Slovak National Gallery ( Slovenska Narodna Galeria ) is a superb exhibition centre,bookshop and cafe ,it's located in a really nice building that looks amazing,reminded me so much about the architecture I saw in Vienna.
We were here admiring the Ludovit Stur Monument and this building is directly across the road from the monument.
Easy to locate on a street called Riecna in an area just off the Old Town.
Well worth checking out.

I visited on a Sunday and it was really quiet which made for a pleasant visit. I was there during the excellent Filla Fulla exhibit. Nice layout, free entry and an excellent bookshop make this a worthwhile visit.

We visited here on a sunday, it was very quiet, and i think some parts of the museum were closed. My favourite exhibits here are the Messerschmidt Heads. There are 12, and to see them all in one place was fantastic, the rest of the museum was good too.

In January I was back in Bratislava for the second phase of my overseas dental treatment. After the dental appointments and a couple of visits to my local friends, I still had some free time on my hands. I like walking, but the weather was not really suitable for this, and so it was time to take in a couple more of the city's galleries.

The Slovak National Gallery's Bratislava site (there are others) is currently in the midst of a major reconstruction and refurbishment programme, and so exhibitions are limited to three small floors in the older part know as the Eszterhazy Palace. Apparently to compensate for the limited size of the exhibitions entrance is currently free.

The 1st floor is a permanent exhibition of an interesting selection of religious icons and paintings. Many were by artists from the region.

The 2nd floor was closed as it was being prepared for a temporary exhibition on architecture.

The 3rd floor had a temporary exhibition of Bazovsky photography and art documenting the region and its people in the first half of the 20th century. It was interesting to reflect upon how life was then and how it has changed in the intervening period.

Check the SNG web site for details of the temporary exhibitions.

Both floors that were open at the time of my visit were imaginatively presented Currently, you could cover the gallery in an hour or so, unless you have a particular interest in the subject of one or more of the exhibitions. However, looking at the size of the area under reconstruction, once the full gallery reopens I could probably spend much longer here, and I look forward to making a return visit and writing a further review on one of my future trips to the city.
