MUSEUM SNP, Banska Bystrica

History Museum · Museum
Relive one of the most turbulent periods in Slovakia's history at MUSEUM SNP, a facility dedicated to the country's experience during World War II. Though the uprising was militarily defeated, it was symbolic of a nation that refused to give in. Stop by the museum, housed in a distinctly Communist-style concrete building, and trace the nation's development during the war, beginning with the German takeover and ending with its liberation at the hands of the resistance movement and the Soviet and Czechoslovakian Armies. Get an up-close view of weapons, personal items, letters, correspondences, and more in the exhibits. Outside, see the display of military vehicles and visit the tomb of the Unknown Soldier under the bridge. Make MUSEUM SNP part of your personalized Banska Bystrica itinerary using our Banska Bystrica trip planning app.

  • If you like tanks and other ww2 era military vehicles the places is worth checking out. It's next to a museum that has everything in English and Slovak. Worth a walk through for sure. It helps that it's free
  • 'Those who do not learn history are doomed to repeat it.' Very true and very important to teach kids what actually happend in past to understand and change future.
