Liptovský Hrádok is a beautiful town in the heart of the charming Liptov countryside, but it also has a rich history and many cultural monuments that remember the past times very well. The local mining and metallurgy tradition is also referred to by the local Maša Museum of Mining and Metallurgy.

The museum associates historical objects Vážnica and Klopačka from the golden mining times. In their active form, these buildings were preserved until the second half of the 19th century. At present, there is a gallery of selected reproductions of old mining wood engravings from the work of Juraj Agrico in Klopačka.

The exhibiton of the history of mining and metallurgy in Liptov is installed in the weighing facility. Visitors have a unique opportunity to see the miners' clothing, the collection of mining lamps and work tools in detail. In addition, the museum presents the history of metal mining and processing through two-dimensional panels with textual text and rich illustrations.

The Maša Museum of Mining and Metallurgy represents an extended exhibition of the Liptov Museum in Ružomberok.
