Gemer-Malohont Museum Rimavská Sobota

Museum & Gallery

The museum, which was set up in 1882, focuses primarily on the Gemer-Malohont historical region. Since 1996, it has also been documenting the culture of the Roma in, but not only, the Gemer-Malohont region.

Its collections include 62,832 objects. There is also a very valuable museum collection of historical books with 32, 745 items. In 2005, the Ministry of Culture of the Slovak Republic declared 70 printed materials from the 16th century to be historical book documents. The permanent museum exposition on national history and geography which was installed in 1979 provides a comprehensive insight into the rich and varied history and nature of the Gemer-Malohont region. In 2008, the exposition "Anti-Nazi resistance and Slovak National Uprising in Gemer-Malohont" was opened. Every year, the Gemer-Malohont Museum prepares its visitors 13 new exhibitions, on average.

One of the most unique and attractive collection items, with respect to museum visitors, is a mummy of a woman called Tasheritnetiakh from the archaeological site of Abusír el-Melek from the 21st to 25th ruling Dynasty (1087-664 B.C.) It is one of the five Egyptian mummies present in Slovakia. It was brought to Rimavská Sobota in 1910 by István Süteő-Munkácsi, an estate owner, lawyer and explorer who brought it together with several other items he acquired on his journeys in Egypt and Asia Minor and donated it to the museum in the same year.

Events Around

Hudba v kruhu: Marc Ribot (USA)

Marc Ribot, jeden z najoriginálnejších hudobníkov súčasnosti, gitarista Toma Waitsa, spoluhráč Johna Zorna, koncertuje v súčasnosti s desiatimi projektami - od koncertnej filmovej hudby cez punk, s hudbou Johna Cagea až k latinskoamerickým fúziám. Čo čakať od jeho sólového koncertu? Medzi jeho 24 albumami je 6 sólových nahrávok, všetky sú štýlovo rôznorodé. Kritika píše, že jeho sólové vystúpenia sú nepredvídateľné, často založené na čistej improvizácii.
