The Betliar Museum specialises in documenting the history of gentry. It is located in the past hunting palace of the Andrássy family (a National Cultural Monument) which is situated in a large Romantic park in Betliar. The castle was one of the many other mansions of the family until 1945. The original building can be dated back to the first half of the 15th century. Soon it was enlarged. The present shape of the castle was formed during the last reconstruction at the end of the 19th century under Emanuel Andrássy. At end of 18th century a natural park was constructed closely corresponding to the surrounding nature as it was common at that time among the nobilities. Later it was wide-spread and supplemended by lots of dendrological rarenesses and today it is a big complex of 56-hectares with many watterfalls and building attractions. In 1985 the authorities of the Slovak Republic declared the whole area of the Betliar Castle to be a National Cultural Monument as a precious cultural and historical heritage of many centuries.
