Description

If you are not a fan of contemporary modern museums, try visiting a museum that breathes and embodies history just by the appearance of the building. The Spiš Museum in Levoča has more than 120 years of history and is one of the most visited in Slovakia. The museum manages 4 exhibitions -the Historical Town Hall, the House of Master Paul, the Exhibition Hall and Spiš Castle.

The exposition called the Exhibition Hall is located in one of the most architecturally impressive burgher houses of Levoča Square with preserved original stone articles and fresco decorations. The burgher house stands on the square of Master Paul no. 40 and has a rich past. Older memorials may also be known as the Hain's house or the Evangelical Lyceum.

The house had several well-known owners, such as the Provost of Spiš, Ján Horváth, brother-in-law of Master Paul - Ladislav Polierer, or František Máriássi. In 1982, the house became a museum after extensive reconstruction. Visitors can admire the art-historical exposition, which represents a representative cross-section of works from the Spiš region.
