Castle History Museum
SNM - Bojnice Castle Museum belongs among the most significant monuments and most visited museums in the country. The museum traces the history and construction of the castle and the lives of the aristocrats who lived there, and it presents an impressive collection of classical art, artistic crafts, and artifacts from various epochs of Slovakian history. Browse paintings and sculptures from the Gothic, Renaissance, Baroque, and Classicism periods, produced by Slovakian and foreign artists. Among the textiles, look for the large 17th-century Joseph and His Brothers tapestry, woven in Brussels. The weapons collection includes guns and cold weapons from the 17th and 18th centuries, Renaissance trunks, Baroque chests, and Viennese and Parisian clocks make up a large part of the furnishings. A travertine cave beneath the castle, the Palffy family tomb, and a park with numerous rare foreign trees complete the castle complex.

  • Fairy tail like castle. Fantastic place to visit. Breaths history up till today.
  • Great place and beautiful, little bit expensive but with the price you get and tour. Photos cost 2 Euro and you pay at the entrance.
  • Nice but very tired after so much walking. No wheelchair access
  • Beautifully preserved piece of history. Tours are every 2 hours, but you see the entire castle including the cave grotto below. The tour was in Slovakian, but they offered a little booklet in English so we could follow along. The hand painted wall coverings alone earned the entrance fee.
  • This is probably the most beautiful castle in Slovakia which is worth visiting. There is a museum inside the castle showing history of the castle and much more. I recommend you to visit the castle together with the zoo which is located near the castle.
