[[Image:Slovak National Gallery.JPG|thumbnail|The front of the gallery.]] The '''Slovak National Gallery''' ({{lang-sk|Slovenská národná galéria}}, abbreviated SNG) is a network of galleries in [[Slovakia]]. It has its headquarters in Bratislava. The gallery was established by law on 29 July 1949. In Bratislava, it has its displays situated in [[Esterházy Palace (Bratislava)|Esterházy Palace]] (''Esterházyho palác'') and the Water Barracks (''Vodné kasárne'') which are adjacent to each other. The Esterházy Palace was reconstructed for the purposes of the gallery in the 1950s and a modern extension was added in the 1970s.
