Slovak National Gallery

National Gallery

Holds frequent exhibitions, discussions, and occasional auctions.

During Socialism, the project to expand the Slovak National Gallery was suppose to engulf the entire block. In the end only a few buildings were torn down, and now you can see 3 different styles of architecture in one block - the Esterhazy Palace from 1760, the Water Barracks from 1870, and the newer (currently architecturally unstable) wing built during socialism.

All of these together are part of the Slovak National Gallery, but they have different exhibits, different costs of admission, and different opening hours.

The Gallery is in the Old Town, alongside the Danube, just a few minutes on foot from the Historic Building of the Slovak National Theater and the Reduta. It is also near the transportation hub under Novy Most (the New Bridge) on the Old Town side of the Danube.

Admission is € 3.50 for adults, € 1.30 for students and senior citizens, € 0.80 for children, but that price can occasionally be altered depending on what type of exhibition is being shown.

The Gallery is open Tuesday through Sunday 10:00 a.m.until 6:00 p.m., closed Mondays. Last entrance is at 5:00 p.m. They have an English language website that you can consult for slightly more additional info. Calling the museum for additional information will leave you feeling that the management of the museum, much like its unattractive outer facade, seems securely stuck in ways of the communist era. But that shouldn't stop you from visiting the place - there's no need to phone ahead or to check anything on their website. Just go and try the place out.
