It was founded in 2001. The statute of the museum was acquired in 2004.
It contains 400 exhibits from the history of the city as well as from the history of mining activities. Part of the museum is the gallery of the 70th woodcutters of Jan Procner, master craftsman. Future intention to extend exposure to exhibits with sacred history.

A meeting with an artistically distinctive personality is always an experience. However, a meeting with a person who has worked exclusively on her art, led by her inner voice and whose subject matter is her own life, is an event. Indeed, we do not often experience the likeness of a power similar to that of the art that Mascott Procner has invented. I speak Master, and I think literally, because the master can go about making his new work, always as though creating for the first time and at the same time putting everything he knows what he feels and knows, love and pain, joy and sadness, knowledge and dream, and they do not have to sign under their works. We know that there is only one such author.


Born on 13th January 1943 in Vyhnia, he lived his life in Handlová, worked in Handlovy mines. He carved, entered the art life. His works have been successful at exhibitions, they are represented in gallery collections and have received awards. Already these facts testify to the recognition of the exceptional work of Ján Procner.


Jan Procner understands wood. He is able to handle the material very precisely and accurately, to make his idea accurate. The entire cycle of Procner works draws on the deep knowledge of mining work. His creative approach, however, is not a straightforward identification with the experienced. While his works tell of hard and hard work in the underground, they approach people and mines. The author re-evaluates. Often knowingly choosing the means of grotesque and irony, the satirical view of the satiric, the sight of the human weakness that is most visible in the hard conditions of the brown coal mine (Recorder) In other words, with love and humor, he talks about life in money (Banícke desiaty cycle, Unknown smell spreads from the wall ).


The mound is cruel. Although the earth is publishing its riches, it asks the victims. In the sculptural meaning of the work, the tragedy of testimony has a bursting meaning. Serious tone and anxiety about the life and health of a son, husband, father sounds in a cycle of Banícke Mothers. Relief of the Mother The earth is loving and cruel to one of the most prolific works of Procner. Mother Earth pryyliza, roli a miník in her arms, another gniavi with her rude legs.


New tones are heard in the latest works. In Banik Bethlehem, the Younger is coming to worship the miners, bringing to them the most precious: mining tools that are symbolic of a mining state and an open heart, which means love.
