Podtatranské museum Poprad

    In 1945, the museums in Velka Lomnica and in Poprad merged into one and the Podtatranske Museum was established in a form as we know it today. The museum offers expositions of Tatras nature, history of Poprad, or exposition of blueprints manufacturing.
   The Podtatranské Museum was founded in Poprad by Hungarian Carpathian Association in 1876. Given the disagreement  about the location of the museum, the Tatra Museum opened in Veľká Lomnica in 1882, and in 1886, the Carpathian Museum opened in Poprad. In 1945, the two museums merged into one called the Tatra Museum of the Poprad district / since 1961 as the Podtatranské Museum. In 1978, the museum acquired another building in Spišská Sobota that now also serves for exposition purposes.  The museum also manages so-called Werner's House in Spišská Sobota, dated to 15th century. The pride of the museum is the calc tuff mould of the cerebral part of the skull of a pre-neanderthal woman found in Gánovce. The estimated age is 120.000 years. It was discovered by a local citizen Koloman Koky, who is said to have sold it for only 100  korunas to J. Petrbok, an archaeologist. The museum has an extensive library (roughly 17.000 volumes). Considered as unique is a German grammar of Sanskrit, a textbook of Turkish with attached parallel grammar of Arabic and Persian, and an older Hebrew edition of a famous legal work Shulchan Aruch (“Set Table”) by a Palestinian rabbi Joseph Quaro, who lived during 1488-1578.
