THE BEAUTY OF SENT TIMES
In the exposition opened in 2007, the museum made part of the collections of the historical collection available. Interior units with period furniture and accessories from the beginning of the 18th century to the beginning of the 20th century are on display.
But before we move to the literally "Aristocratic Corner", we will briefly get acquainted with the history of Trnava. After welcoming the statues of two Turkish soldiers, we will have the opportunity to admire, for example, rare chained chests, artifacts of Trnava guilds, executioners, the Jewish community to the skeleton of a Hussite spy.
Rare pieces of furniture complemented by original works of art form the aristocratic interior. The objects come from the manor house of the Zeriov family in Voderad, whose members devoted themselves to collecting artistic and valuable objects on their travels in Europe and other parts of the world. Family galleries with portraits of famous family members decorated the walls of the chambers, corridors and stairs of castles, chateaux and manors. Following the example of the higher nobility, peasants, later rich burghers, could also be portrayed. Married portraits were especially popular. The presented stylized gallery consists of paintings from the collections of the West Slovak Museum. The interior of the burgher household is composed of small things that come from Trnava burgher families. The third interior is furnished with simple burgher furniture, which creates the illusion of a student's room in a sublet at the end of the 19th century. The room with Art Nouveau furniture and accessories is an area from the beginning of the 20th century inhabited by a woman engaged in an activity common in burgher households - handicrafts.
It is also worth mentioning, but it is definitely worth a collection of rare historical porcelain, rare huge clocks, artistically carved pipes or richly decorated cabinets and jewelry boxes.
