Children and Families

Families and children can choose from a wide range of activities. You are kindly invited to actively spend some of your leisure time in front of the gallery paintings.

The activities are usually conducted in the Slovenian language, however, we are happy to organise tours, workshops and birthdays in foreign languages. Please note that in such a case bookings should be made at least 14 days in advance. Please contact the Department for Education for details on which languages are currently available.

For Families

Saturday Creative Workshops

On Saturdays you are invited to a creative mornings in the permanent collections and temporary exhibitions.

In the workshop we get to know a work of art and explore what it depicts, who created it and how, what story it is hiding and more. Clues like objects, sounds, smells and riddles lead us to the work and we also prepare worksheets for those who are eager to learn even more. After the first part spent among the works of art we make our way to the workshop, where we create our own drawings and paintings. See the announcements by clicking here.

Multi-sensory Activities

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 are conducted in the Slovenian language.

Gal's Green Chest

To independently explore the works of art, borrow the Dwarf's green chest free of charge in the museum shop. Walk through the permanent collection Art in Slovenia and discover the secrets of the paintings from Prešeren's time. The Dwarf has put a guide into the chest, together with colouring pages and objects that make the search for works of art and their study fun and educative.
