One of the oldest buildings in Senec is the so-called Turkish house, which stands on the southeast side of the square. It was built in the 16th century and had several defensive features, including a secret escape corridor leading to the courtyard of the neighboring house. Later on, the Turkish House served as the seat of the Municipal office of Senec and also fulfilled various administrative and cultural functions.

At present, the building is registered in the list of monuments of the Slovak Republic for its seat was chosen by the Town Museum. At present, the museum has two permanent exhibitions. The exposition of nature captures the basic aspects of the living and inanimate nature of Senca and its surroundings. It also deals with local paleontological findings, the most important of which is the finding of mammoth from 1961.

The second exhibition is devoted to the older history of Senec and its surroundings. It presents individual stages of human society development from prehistoric times to modern times. Visitors can admire valuable archaeological finds as well as various facsimiles and reprographies.

Among the exhibited collection objects visitors will certainly be interested in the portreeve chalets dating back to 1614 or the beautiful collection of findings from Hallstatt burial mounds from nearby Reca, which comes from the collections of the National Museum in Galanta.

In addition to permanent exhibitions, the Town Museum in Senica also offers a wide range of educational programs for pupils and students. It organizes various professional lectures and exhibitions for the general public, which by their nature complement and extend the permanent expositions.
