The history of the Jan Thain Museum began in 1936 under the name of the Municipal Museum. The founders were Béla Szőke, prof. Ján Thain, Cpt. Ludvík Albrecht and Kazimír Saskó. At that time, the Turkish-themed exhibition had its premiere, which was presented on the occasion of the 250th anniversary of the liberation of Nové Zámky from under Ottoman rule.

At present, the museum focuses mainly on research and documentation of the Nové Zámky region. It offers several permanent expositions to visitors:

  • "In the footsteps of ancestors" - an archaeological exhibition bringing the milestones of cultural, social and historical development of human society in the region from the Early Paleolithic to the 16th century.

  • “Gone with the Time” - a historical exposition dedicated to the history of Nové Zámky from the Middle Ages to the mid-20th century.

  • "From the Treasury of Folk Art" and "From the Life of Ancestors" - an ethnographic exhibition containing a representative selection of the most beautiful decorated objects of the museum's ethnographic collection. The exhibition also offers a look at the life of our ancestors from the first half of the 20th century.

  • Anton Bernolák (life and work) - captures the turbulent period at the end of the 18th century materialized in the person of Anton Bernolák.

  • Czuczor Gergely (life and work) - the exhibition presents the life of an important writer and poet who contributed to the development of the Hungarian national epics, ballads and linguistics.

The Ján Thain Museum also manages two other extended exhibitions - the Archaeological Museum in Svodin and the House of Folk Traditions in Svodin.
