In the house where Banská Štiavnica native and Beatles photographer Dežo Hoffmann used to live, the first museum in the world dedicated to this personality has been opened.
After twelve years of reconstruction, its current owners, brothers Michal and Šimon Šafařík, decided to open the 250-year-old craftsman house to the public, regional daily My Žiar reported.
Photos and personal objects
Their primary interest was to create a museum about Dežo Hoffmann with his original photos and personal objects they gained from his daughter and other sources.
“We are lucky to have such skilful people in Štiavnica who decided on such a big thing, and I also really appreciate their hard work, which is behind all of this,” said one of the visitors, Monika Angušová of Banská Štiavnica, as quoted by My Žiar.
