The Archaeological Museum is a specialised museological workplace with a nationwide scope. It focuses on the acquisition, registration, restoration, preservation, presentation, and publishing of archaeological findings in the territory of Slovakia from the Prehistoric Age to the High Middle Ages.
The richly represented collections of the Archaeological Museum have a vast number of valuable findings from various areas of Slovakia, from the prehistoric age to modern times, mainly from the museum’s own archaeological research. The rarest of them are presented at an exhibition called The Earliest History of Slovakia. The Archaeological Museum is seated in the Renaissance Kamper mansion on Žižkova Street 12.
On 29 January 2009, the exhibition Earliest History of Slovakia was officially opened for the visually-impaired. The exhibition is equipped with a tactile guiding line with exhibits supplemented with Braille texts. Visitors can use mobile audio devices - audio-guides with acoustic information regarding space identification, periods of history from the Prehistoric Age to the Late Middle Ages and individual exhibits included in the tactile guiding line. Recently, the audio-guide services have been extended - audio-guides in 4 languages - Slovak, English, German and Hungarian are available for museum visitors. (Žižkova Street 16)
From January to September 2010, an exhibition with the title "Bojná – Significant Centre of the Principality of Early Slavic Population" will be open to the public. The exhibition presents an important archaeological site of Bojná – a location which in the 9th century had a fortified settlement with earliest material evidence of christianization of our ancestors.
