Description The article deals with the role of the National Museum in the process of creating a Slovak national identity. It focuses mainly on the specifics that were associated with the establishment of the Slovak National Museum as an institution. These were closely related to the complicated history of the formation of Slovak national consciousness in the 19th and 20th centuries. It also focuses on analyzing the architecture of the main buildings of the Slovak National Museum and its connection with the concept of the museum as an educational, public, and political institution. Finally, it analyzes two important permanent collections – historical and ethnographic. At the same time, attention is paid to the role played by the well-known conceptualizations of the Slovak nation.
