The exhibition presents portraits and various furniture items from the 17th to the 19th century in Spiš. It comprises relatively small individual pieces and solitaires of historical furniture combined with portraits.
The authors of portraits, which depict significant Spiš aristocratic and burgeois families, are mostly unknown. Jozef Czauczik, Ladislav Medňanský, who used to stay in a nearby mansion, Strážky, Mikuláš Barabáš, Ferdinand Katona, Karol Tibelly, Ján Gottlieb Kramer, Jozef Zanussi and many others rank among the outstanding painters.
