There is a nice collection of Jewish religion and culture with excellent descriptions in Slovakian and English. The displays cover the history of Jews in the regions from Roman times through the end of the 20th century.

Loved this small museum on Jewish culture. Included some information on the treatment of Jews in the 2nd world war. Particularly like the room on the 2nd floor which is a tribute to Imi Lichtenfeld, the founder of Krav Maga.
