Characteristics:

Small Carpathian Museum in Pezinok is a regional museum presenting the history of viticulture and wine making in the Small Carpathian area.  The museum is located in a burgher's vineyard house dating from the 17th century and attracts visitors with its interactive underground exhibition. The museum represents one of the most important central European collections of grape presses dating to start of the 17th century on through to the middle of the 20th century, as well as with additional cultivation and wine making tools, barrels, etc.  The exposition uses multimedia resources as well as other interactive elements to activate all of the visitor's senses during their tour and includes an aroma bar (recognizing the scents in wines), corking wine bottles and the opportunity to taste Small Carpathian wines with light refreshments and the professional guidance of a sommelier. The museum's collection includes around 55,000 items, primarily dealing with viticulture and wine making as well as history, folk lore and art history. A major portion of documents in the collection details events in Pezinok itself. The museum's collection includes a precious collection of faience figural sculptures from Master Ferdiš Kostka, which realistically portray the bold figures from the folk environment, different types of people and expressions of their work and lives. The museum building underwent complete renovations from 2006 to 2007. The museum also organizes regular exhibitions directly in the museum building and abroad while also conducting research, educational and training activities. The Small Carpathian Museum in Pezinok organizes a range of events as well, including the Feast of St. Urban, patron saint of the wine industry, the Ceramics Market, Apple Festival, Night at the Museum and Pezinok Wine Cellars, which features tastings of the best local wines in authentic cellars in the centre of Pezinok and provides the opportunity for music and art presentations and performances.
