• Banícke námestie 484/8, Gelnica

A charming architectural building in the historic center of Gelnica is the Old Town Hall with its majestic Baroque tower, which now houses the Mining Museum of Gelnica. The Mining Museum was originally an external facility of the Spiš Museum in Spišská Nová Ves, but today it is under the administration of the Gelnica Municipal Office.

The current museum was founded in 1963 and documents mining, ethnography, the history of the city, geology and guilds from the reign of Maria Theresa to the present. The collections originate mostly from the surroundings of Gelnica and the largest ones mainly relate to the 19th and 20th centuries.

The Mining Museum in Gelnica includes "Jozef Gulley", which is located on Turzovská Street near the Lower Turzovské Lake. The tunnel exposition was opened to the public in 2016. It is necessary to inquire in advance on the current opening hours of this extended exposition by the phone.
