Description

If you want to get to know the history of the town of Svätý Jur as well as its specifics, which have shaped it for several thousand years, head to the Literary and Homeland Museum. The museum was founded in 1952 as the Museum of Peter Jilemnický. The literary part was later joined by the town museum with the exposition entitled History of the town of Svätý Jur as a homeland part.

Nowaday, you can see unique objects in the museum, which were part of the archaeological research on the fort Neštich that belonged to Svätý Jur, as well as those that document the life in the city from the Neolithic to the present day. The literary exhibition is located in a building located in the immediate vicinity of the family house of Peter Jilemnický.

The museum regularly organizes short-term thematic exhibitions, events and professional lectures. The individual expositions are part of the Small Carpathian Museum in Pezinok.
