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.
