The most valuable collections: early Christian patrons of miners - Saint Barbara and Saint Catharine - form the years of about 1506 -1515.
The Jozef Kollár Gallery is part of the Slovak Mining Museum. The Gallery collects, prepares and presents visual art dating from the 13th century to the present. The Gallery’s collections include rare artworks on the theme of mining, which illustrate the social, cultural and economic importance of the Banská Štiavnica region throughout history. As part of the Mining Museum’s new, greener approach, the Gallery’s programme will include artworks addressing topics such as global climate change, nature conservation and ecologically sustainable human activity, among others.
The Gallery also works with contemporary visual artists, presenting their work to the public through individual and group exhibitions, curatorial projects, interventions to existing collections, outdoor exhibitions, etc. The Gallery uses its historical collections as well as ongoing exhibitions to organise educational events for schools as well as for the public, both lay and expert.
The Jozef Kollár Gallery is housed in three historical buildings in the town centre, on Holy Trinity Square (Námestie svätej Trojice). Among its several exhibition spaces, halls and rooms, you will also find enchanting courtyards and charmingly unusual nooks. During your visit, your artistic experience will be enhanced by the history and architecture of the building that surrounds you – traces of a bygone time. Like Alice in Wonderland, you can wander about and leave reality behind. You are most welcome to visit us!
