The family open house week runs from 15 to 22 May. On the International Day of the Museums (18 May) we organize a flea market, workshops and animations which will take place in the courtyard in front of MGLC.
Through Play to Heritage
A joint campaign by Slovene museums and galleries for children and families takes place in the Week of the Child at the beginning of October. During this time, MGLC offers free admission to view the exhibitions, discussions, games and workshops.
SOCREA (SOcializing and CREAting) is a print art workshop for children, families and adults, where small prints are created under the guidance of an education curator and a master printer. During the festive season, holiday greeting cards are produced.
5 EUR/person for adults and free for children
