Slovak National Gallery Slovak National Gallery

After the summer, we are open again. When visiting the Esterházy Palace, come to see our new exhibition of Július Koller and the digital installation displaying the recollections of the SNG Bridge. We reopened the Ex Libris bookstore and the Library of Kornel and Naďa Földvári and children are welcome to enjoy the interactive projection The Curious Art History with Professor Hamster (Škreček).


Current exhibitions

Action ZET / Art-historical Undertaking Action ZET / Art-historical Undertaking Esterházyho palác, Bratislava
Exhibition will last 31 days

As of November this year, artist Marcel Mališ will be painting his authorial replica of the lost work in the SNG atrium under a changed title ThanksSeeming of the Czechoslovak People. How precisely he will copy the origin is up to his decision. The gallery will be his "studio" and the picture will develop in front of the public eye. The painting action will become a starting point of a new experimental genre - an art undertaking which reflects our thinking about the status of the national gallery as an educational institution of today; a place of asking questions and looking for answers.

Lost and Found. Expedition to the Past and Future of Schaubmar Mill  Lost and Found. Expedition to the Past and Future of Schaubmar Mill Schaubmarov Mlyn v Pezinku, Pezinok-Cajla
Exhibition will last 149 days

The exhibition Lost and Found is an oddity in the Schabmar Mill′s portfolio of titles since its main research and presentation object is the mill itself, its history, presence, and future, too. The exhibition is a jigsaw of fragments put together with the help of eyewitnesses, relatives, neighbours, historians, designers, architects, photographers...

Does art always have to be beautiful? And do I have to understand it? Male or female artist? Does it matter? Can I become part of the artwork? Am I allowed to laugh in a gallery? And why even bother to go there when everything is online already? Do works of art need titles? Is just an idea enough for it to become a piece of art? Even I could do it!

We are proud to invite you to the reconstructed Slovak National Gallery! To guide you through the
new premises, we have prepared 12 unique exhibition experiences. You will have the opportunity to view works of old masters, modern art, and contemporary art in various, often surprising, interplays of relationships and dialogues. In an unconventional combination of works from different periods, we have taken a retrospective of the gallery's acquisitions over the past 30 years and showcased SNG collections in all their diversity. The magnitude of the installations will also give you a sense of the upcoming permanent exhibitions that will gradually be introduced from 2023.

After a long and challenging reconstruction, we are finally opening the new Slovak National Gallery (SNG) in Bratislava! From 11 December 2022, you can enjoy the three opening exhibitions and the unforgettable sensation of something uniquely new, something we have all been waiting for for a very long time.

We are opening the SNG to people fleeing the war in Ukraine

At SNG, we are looking for different ways to help people fleeing the war in Ukraine by visiting our gallery, taking part in creative activities or community building. If you know Ukrainians who would find this information useful, we would be happy for you to share them.

International Certificate for SNG as Home of 21st Century Education

Educational activities of the Slovak National Gallery are gaining acknowledgement even at international level. SNG as one of the pilot institutions has received a certificate from the organisation Hands On! devoted to the position of children in museum institutions.
