The Small Carpathian Museum in Pezinok has been reopened to the public since 18 November 2008 after two years of renovation. By using EU funds and funds from the founder, the Bratislava self-governing region, the museum’s building has undergone a complete reconstruction. Our institution is being shaped as a regional museum with a strong accent on viticulture, grape growing and notably wine from the Small Carpathian viticulture region. The wine takes centre stage, as it is the final product in which the customer is most interested. The public is offered a tour of the cellar exposition with the biggest collection of viticulture presses in Europe, temporary exhibitions on various topics, workshops for schools and Small Carpathian wine tasting in the unique premises of the museum. It is one of the organisers of the St. Urban event, the Richard Réti Memorial international chess tournament, the Ceramic market and it is one of the stops during the Open Cellar Day on the Small Carpathian Wine Road. Together with the civic association Museum Vinorum, it is an organiser of the Pezinok Wine Cellars. The museum also organises temporary exhibitions abroad (e.g. the Vinohrady, wine and people exhibition presented in September 2005 in the European Parliament in Strasbourg and later in Vienna and Milotice, Czech Republic).
With regards to our personnel, our institution has its own sommelier along with professional employees and technical staff.
