Green Museum Mission
Slovak Mining Museum is located in Banská Štiavnica, a medieval UNESCO town. The Museum’s rich collections are exhibited in two castles and several other precious historical buildings in the town and its surroundings. Being aware of the climate crisis, the Museum works toward transforming the way it functions. We implement environment-friendly measures, motivate employees to engage in ecologically responsible behaviour, plant trees, organize exhibitions and events that address a wide range of environmental issues, etc. As an institution, we are fully aware of the need to take action, if we want to have a hope for greener future.
