MANOR HOUSE SUSANNA - MUSEUM EXPERIENCE
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.
The project Manor House Susanna - An Experience in the Museum benefits from a 1 000 000 € grant from Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway through the EEA Grants. The project has been co-financed from the State Budget of the Slovak Republic in the amount of 150 000 €. The aim of the project is to completely renovate a historical farm building in the historic area of the Manor House in Markušovce, Slovakia and then install new exhibitions enriched with augmented reality. The parallel goal is to create a better background for the work of professional employees of the museum and the implementation of creative workshops for both professional and general public.
