The Slovak National Museum, based in the capital of Slovakia since 1961, has collected, documented, done scientific research, educated visitors and in recent years also presented its exhibits through a network of twelve specialized museums, where experts from a number of scientific disciplines work. The fundamental mission of the Slovak National Museum is to utilize its studies and research to systematically gather, preserve, technically process and evaluate through scientific methods the collected items which particularly document the region of Slovakia, the Slovak nation and ethnic groups living within the country.
