Berggericht, formerly the seat of the Mining Court and later also used by the Mining Academy, currently houses a Mineralogical Exposition.
The exposition showcases more than 400 kinds of minerals and displays an overview of mineral materials to be found in Slovakia. Visitors are also invited to see a mining gallery called Michal, 75 metres of which is available for the public. The museum also houses Banská Štiavnica Information centre.
A visit to Berggericht may be combined with a Mining Route tour with lower admission fees.
