The Spiš Museum in Spišská Nová Ves
For over 60 years, the Spiš Museum has been situated in a former medieval town hall with a magnificent rococo facade, so the trip to the past begins before entering the museum itself. The history of the region is represented by exhibits from archeological and mining collections, but it does not end with history. Other exhibitions display the geographical, geological, zoological and botanical characteristic of this unique region, including Slovak Paradise, Spiš-Gemer Ore, Hornád Basin and Lečova mountains. Exhibitions in Markušovce (Manor house in Markušovce) and in Smižany (National historic museum, Birth house of captain Ján Nálepka) are also a part of the museum. The museum is located on the north side of the longest lenticular square in Europe, opposite the parish church with the highest tower in Slovakia.
