    In the main building the most interesting exhibitors is the treasure of gold (Košický Zlatý poklad) where for only three euros can see coins of times and different countries from the ancient centuries until the 18th century. This underground part is renewed. (The other parts of the Museum are located in the Centre of the city - the old prison Miklušova vaznica and the House of Rákóczi - Rodosto.) The entrance to be paid apart.)

    I visited the wooden church was moved to the 30's to ask the Museum for the Ruthenia (now the Ukraine territory Zakarpattia region) was still the Czechoslovakian territory. Church is in the backyard, but usually takes a key and a is not out. Was restricted to the exterior wooden church with belfry, Slovakia, Poland and Ukraine more to wooden churches that dot this kind of transportation inconvenient suburbs and small towns and villages to be so, for the time being however to see what want what is not very helpful, good. Special exhibition offers footsteps as Yugoslavia's Ivo Andretti diplomat and man of letters along with their belongings and writings back and coin collection permanent exhibition, birds (was'd, but memory is not clear) of (permanent? ) Displays.
