Renovation of the Museum and Gallery (Activity 2)
This activity is dedicated to the renovation of the glass museum with gallery in Lednické Rovne. The museum needs minor construction modifications so that it is wheelchair accessible and it would give an opportunity to purchase various service packages and glass products as well. The new interior equipment and furnishing of museum as new exhibitions stands and items of the furniture will be procured. Slovak glass museum was established in 1988. Its exposition is situated in the adjacent Mansion from the end of 16th century in immediate proximity of the historical park. The permanent glass exhibition gives the picture of glass production history in Slovakia from the past to the present time. The special part of the exposition is created by the working tools and by the map of this historical glass factory. Within the building is also the gallery established with the exposition of glass art works. Nowadays museum and gallery are functioning in restricted mode. It is not operated daily, only upon requests. The owner of the Mansion and Glass museum with gallery is Slovak project partner – company RONA a.s.
