The beginnings of the Renaissance-Baroque castle date back to the 16th century. Today, the Castle is a seat of the specialized Slovak National Museum branch concerned with the housing culture of the nobility and bourgeoisie in Slovakia. It is open all year except 24th, 25th, 26th December, 1st January and Mondays from 1 October to 30 April, but its activities for visitors take place especially during the season, from the 1st May to 30th September.
The Červený Kameň Museum is situated in the historical buildings of Červený Kameň Castle, which is a dominant structure in the Little Carpathians region. This castle is unique for its architectural elements. Nowadays, there is a permanent exhibition concerning the development of 16th century housing culture among the nobility. The large cellars under the castle belonging among the largest historical cellars in Central Europe also deserve attention.
