After open-air museums, it now mostly opens castles and mansions.
From the mediaeval castle of Červený Kameň (Red Rock) or the Museum of the National Council in Myjava through picturesque Bojnice Castle and the Museum of Toys at Modrý Kameň (Blue Stone) castle, all the way to the vast Spiš Castle, Betliar manor house and gothic gems of Levoča, holiday-makers as well as locals can now pay a visit also on Mondays, SNM informed.

Some museums have already been opened on Monday, including the Museum of Jewish Culture in Bratislava, its branch – the Holocaust Museum in Sereď – and the ethnological Museum of the Slovak Village in Martin, as well as the Museum of Roma Culture in the same town, the Museum of Ukrainian Culture in Svidník and the Museum of Ruthenian Culture in Prešov. Monday open hours will continue until the end of August.
