About
The building of the Nedbalka Gallery hides an impressive interior featuring an internal structure resembling the Guggenheim Museum in New York. Its four floors provide space for a permanent exhibition dedicated to the birth and development of modernism in Slovakia. The history of painting and sculpture in Slovakia in the 20th century is well documented by works by L. Mednyánszky, D. Skutezký, M. Galanda, M. Benka, M. Laluha and many others who fundamentally influenced the development of art in Slovakia. On the ground floor, the visitors will find the latest of the series of exhibitions primarily dedicated to works by Slovak artists.

Spent a good hour in the gallery as it had several floors to look at and was designed in a circle so you didn't miss anything.

This gallery is a gem hidden in Bratislava old town. It does feel like little Guggenheim. The design is so thought trough that you don't waste time wondering where to go and what to start with, but concentrate on indulging into art and light of the gallery.
The art pieces are so cleverly arranged and picked out, amazing.
Also my 4 year old loved to run around and I could always see her and not worry. There are art books on some floors and she loved to see the pictures and try to find the art pieces in the gallery to match.

the space is fresh, welcoming, warm and with friendly personnel. Also the price is just amazing.

If you want to know more about the Slovakian artists, you must visit. Small museum with a nice interior. You will get a tablet with the information about the paintings and painters and after the visit you will be treated with a cup of coffee at the museum cafe - it is included into the ticket price.

Even if you are not an art-fan , you should definitely visit Nedbalka gallery.
It's a small, but very well organised museum, with permanent and temporary exhibitions.
From the 4th floor to the ground-floor, you observe the evolution of Slovakian art.
You can have a good taste of the museum within an hour, or you can spend your whole day there.

Ticket price is 3 euros - student
Transportation is not needed, as it's literally in the heart of the city center.

I was back in Bratislava for four nights for some dental maintenance and to catch up with my local friends. What to do with my remaining free time when it is foggy and wet? Visit one of the museums or galleries that I had missed on my previous visits.

The Nedbalka Gallery is known for its comprehensive collection of Slovakian art from the late 1800s up to the present, and is in the city centre. It was my fist choice on this occasion. It is independent from Bratislava's City Gallery, although it there had been collaboration on the temporary exhibition.

The gallery is housed in a traditional town house, but the interior has been extensively reconstructed to give a central atrium that runs through all the main floors of the building. This is impressive in its own right.

The recommended routine is to start at the top on floor 4, where the earlier exhibits will be found, and then to work your way down through the decades to floor 1. The ground floor (floor 0) is reserved for temporary exhibitions.

You will find no security screens and no crowds, and there are helpful staff. You will have plenty of time to contemplate the works. I found some of the pre-Velvet Revolution works markedly sombre. I am not a great follower of art, and so my visit lasted 90 minutes. I saw only five other visitors.

Admission charges are very modest, and there is a small café on floor 1, but bear in mind that the gallery is only open from 1PM to 7PM. Well worth a visit if you have any interest in art.

Really cool building, not to mention the great collection on display. Friendly staff and a stunning place to wander round. You’d be forgiven for thinking you were in the Guggenheim!
