HANUŠOVCE nad Topľou's Homeland Museum organised an educational and entertaining event on the weekend of May 14-15 to celebrate Slovakia’s Night of Museums and Galleries. The programme included various attractions for children and adults connected with hiking, nature, and historical mysteries from this region.

The Renaissance-Ba-roque mansion that houses the museum has a park where visitors could search for hidden treasure that might have been buried by the knights of the Order of St John – the oldest chivalric order – which is thought to have been founded in 1099 in Jerusalem.

The programme continued in the museum and offered a concert of Baroque music, presentation of local folklore costumes and learning about animals of the region. As well, a mysterious “Red Lady” guided visitors through the corridors of Hanušovce Museum during the evening.

“We wanted to present mysterious places in the vicinity that have a special atmosphere such as Oblík hill in the Slánske Vrchy range, where treasures connected with an ancient cult of mountain deities were found,” Mária Kotorová, the museum’s head, told the TASR newswire, explaining that the museum tried to make local history attractive for all ages.
