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.

Nice museum of Slovakian artists' works
Jul 2020
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.

Break your routine in Bratislava

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.

An Insight Into Slovakian Art
Nov 2019
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.

Cool place

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!

Interesting exhibits, great value for money
Aug 2019 • Solo
For an entry of 5 euros, you get to see some really unique pieces from local artists. I visited in the afternoon and was the only visitor at the beautiful (and thus hidden) gem of a gallery. I could soak in the beauty of the paintings without stomping feet or looking over shoulders😄.

Free coffee or tea with the gallery ticket. Definitely go here. It's a 1 hour visit.

Tourist friendly
Aug 2019
One of the few spots that are tourist friendly, so people in the counter and in general are polite. In my point of view, some of the art work are quite good for not well-known Slovak artists. For me the best part was the third floor. It is a good idea to include this gallery in your itinerary if you are doing a day trip from Vienna. In our case, the museum ticket included a beverage which is a excellent way to finish the visit to the museum. You can visit the museum in less than two hours. So my suggestion is to visit the old town in the morning, have lunch nearby and then visit the museum in the early afternoon to finish with a coffee.
