After the end of Turkish wars the marksmanship became very popular. The exhibited targets are from the 18th and 19th century. The authors were naive painters from Banská Štiavnica, the orders were from the personages of the town, members of the shooting fraternity – mining clerks, mine owners, merchants, craftsmen but imperial visits, too.

The permanent exhibition is completed by historical weapons as target-rifles, lances, powder flasks, magazines, cannon balls, bullets and arrows.
