Expert guided tours in Slovene conducted by curators and exhibition authors take place on Sundays at 11 a.m. and according to previously published schedules.
On the first Sunday in March, April, September, October and on 21 September during the International Day of the Deaf an interpreter for the Slovene sign language will be present.
Note that the gallery is able to secure a sign language interpreter for all its guided tours if the booking is done in advance.
We organize the tours of exhibitions and the activities during which we do not rely only on our sight and hearing but wish to include all our other senses. Activities are thus available to people with sensory disabilities. Multi-sensory activities are free of charge!
Multi-sensory creative activities in Slovene are scheduled for Saturdays at 10 a.m. on: 15 March, 14 June, 20 September and 18 October 2014. They are appropriate for families and children between the ages 5 and 13.

Guided Tours in a Foreign Language
Guided tours of exhibitions at the National Gallery of Slovenia are available to groups of foreigners (at least 10 people) in a foreign language by prior arrangement. One group can include up to 30 people. Larger groups are divided into smaller ones, which is always determined when you book your visit. If you are planning to visit with a large number of guest, note that the gap between two groups is half an hour.
