Molpír Museum, Smolenice

A Roman-Catholic parish house, a sundial and Smolenice - these are the hints to find the place that glows with the magic of history. We speak about Molpír Museum, established in 1996 thanks to the efforts of experts from Nitra and Trnava museums. If you are looking for a well-documented proof of the most progressive period of Smolenice, which at the turn of the 15th and 16th centuries was a small flourishing town with market privileges, then you are at a right place. The town was protected by a wall with guard towers and there was also a Baroque pillory, which was not only a symbol of judicial power, but also one of the most beautiful artistic artefacts of the period. In the museum you can find exhibits of flora and fauna from the Little Carpathians. Another exhibition offered by the Molpír Museum is focused on local Hallstatt fortified settlement. And do you know who Štefan Banič was? One part of the museum is dedicated to the inventor of the parachute. If you are interested in local book collections from the 17th to 19th centuries or in history documented in pictures, you will find all the necessary information in Molpír Museum. And it is not all yet. Among the other attractions of the museum there are exposits of a historian and teacher Štefan Jastrabík, an ethnography of Smolenice, a documented reconstruction of a room from the end of the 19th century, authentic artifacts, tools and folk costumes.
