Children and families

Did you know that the Maribor Art Gallery is the second largest museum of modern and contemporary art in Slovenia? In the UGM Collection, for example, we store over 5,000 artworks by Slovenian authors from the last 100 years. Throughout the year we organize numerous exhibitions of visual arts and a series of activities for children and families in our gallery. Choose your program to awaken children's curiosity and imagination!

The youngest are confronted with the gallery space accompanied by parents, grandmothers and grandfathers on special occasions such as The Week of the Child and The International Family Week. Children from 5 to 9 years of age will learn on Saturday and holiday workshops about our art collection and the art areas that are represented in it, like: drawing, painting, sculpture and photography. Elderly children from 10 to 15 years of age can join UGM Young Experts who, in addition to learning about art and visual arts, are also acquainted with professions and with our other institutions in the field of modern and contemporary fine arts.
