Description

The Vojtech Löffler Museum, housed in a beautiful historical building in Košice's Old Town, is an important and sought-after cultural institution in Košice. The museum was set up by the municipality of Košice - Staré mesto (Old Town) in 1993, thanks to the decision of Master Löffler and his wife to donate their work, house and concentrated art collection to the city of Košice.

The museum currently operates a permanent exhibition of works by Vojtech Löffler and his rich art collection of works by Košice artists. Visitors have a unique opportunity to view more than 2000 exhibits of the master's unique collection. The most valuable exhibits include exhibits of the Hollóház production of the second half of the 19th century, but also Murano, Holíč and Kremnica provenance.

The exhibition also includes the Vojtech Löffler Memorial Room. The collector's passion of Vojtech Löffler is also reflected in his private library, which is also part of the museum. In the past, book collections were stored in a three-part neo-Gothic library from the 19th century. Today they are located in the newly created space at the memorial room of Vojtech Löffler. Mr. Löffler's library collection houses works of mostly Slovak, Hungarian and German production since the beginning of the 18th century.
