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.

The outside area with armored vehicles from WW2 is worth seeing for anyone interested. Exposition is okay I guess, but style of it is old and boring take on the subject, some innovations would be great. Best part was texts in lower floor. Right now (summer 2020) there is also interactive exhibition, which was interesting, but short. I would like to see more of that.
The Museum SNP is really great overall! The Museum SNP is divided into two parts, the open air fixed displays are a bit older and show their age however the payed interior main museum is new, clean and interactive. The Slovak peoples history fighting fascism throughout WWII is very important and should never be forgotten.
