Slovak Agricultural Museum


The Slovak Agricultural Museum resides in a beautiful, natural setting, at 94 Dlhá Street. The museum was established in Bratislava in 1922, and it has been residing in Nitra since 1960. The exhibitions of the museum are dedicated to the traditional forms of Slovak farming, and document a rich agricultural past as well as present. An open-air museum of agriculture, unique in Slovakia, is part of the museum. Other open-air museums lie in the mountains and document residential buildings of folk architecture. The Nitra open-air museum is an interesting cross-section of rural life in the lowland regions of southern Slovakia. Its exhibition contains 33 buildings collected from the whole of Slovakia, among them beehives, a school, bakery, dairy farm, seed cleaner, oil factories, a mill, chalet etc. A major attraction of the museum is the narrow-gauge, light railway for steam engines. The railway was transferred from the  vicinity of Želiezovce, where it was used for the needs of the manor in Želiezovce from 1885. It was in use till 1971 there. It used to transport harvest from the fields, mainly sugarbeet, and also animals and building materials. Whereas there were several dozens of mountain railways in Slovakia, there were only 5 or 6 narrow-gauge light railways. Today, the Nitra light railway operates with three steam engines and a diesel electric engine. The oldest steam engine, U 35 901, comes from 1918. Four coaches for scenic viewing are used for passenger transport.
