THE SLOVAK National Museum in Bratislava is launching two exhibitions on medieval history and the moon, respectively, at Bratislava Castle.
The first is a Spanish-Slovak project called Santiago and His Paths. The 130 exhibits from 33 European cultural institutions will present the history of one of the most important and oldest Christian pilgrimage sites in the world - Santiago de Compostela.
The exhibition opens on September 21 and will run until November 28. It will also feature concerts of medieval music and educational lectures.
The second exhibition, Man on the Moon, is part of a larger multimedia project mapping the journey of the spacecraft Apollo 17. The project is dedicated to the ship's captain, Eugen A Cernan, an American astronaut of Slovak origin who will celebrate his 70th birthday during the event.
Cernan will open the exhibition, which includes photographs the crew took during the mission in 1972, and a screening of authentic documentary film footage of the journey.
The exhibition will run from September 28 to February 15, 2005.
