Welcome to the website dedicated to the implementation of the project Manor House Susanna - Museum Experience, which takes place in the historic complex in Markušovce, Slovakia. This complex is decorated with a historic manor house, a summer house and a French park. There is also a historical farm building - Manor House Susanna. Unlike the manor house and the summer house, this building is currently in poor technical condition.

The purpose of this project is therefore the complete renovation of the entire building into a multifunctional cultural object. We will create facilities for visitors, professional employees, as well as the general professional public. There will also be new exhibitions that will combine three main themes:

  • the life of the aristocratic Máriássy family in Spiš region
  • the history of the wood processing and furniture industry in the Spiš region
  • presentation of traditional folk culture in Spiš, including minorities

However, this project does not end here. The entire exhibition, which will cover two thirds of the building, will be enriched with elements of augmented reality and other modern technologies with the help of Gagarín, an Icelandic company with many years of experience in creating interactive exhibitions. The project will also include the organization of various events and creative workshops for the general public in cooperation with a local vocational woodworking school. The project will also cover a preparation of a complex marketing strategy, which will bring the project to the attention of the general public.
