The Small Carpathian Museum in Pezinok, Bratislava, Slovakia, is a local museum with an emphasis on wine making.
The museum was reopened to the public on 18 November 2008 after two years of renovation. By using European Union funds and funds from the founder, the Bratislava self-governing region, the museum’s building has undergone a complete reconstruction. The institution is being shaped as a regional museum with a strong accent on viticulture, grape growing and notably wine from the Small Carpathian viticulture region.
The museum features a tour of the cellar exposition with the biggest collection of viticulture presses in Europe, temporary exhibitions on various topics, workshops for schools and Small Carpathian wine tasting in the unique premises of the museum. It is one of the organisers of the St. Urban event, the Richard Réti Memorial international chess tournament, the Ceramic market and it is one of the stops during the Open Cellar Day on the Small Carpathian Wine Road. Together with the civic association Museum Vinorum, it is an organiser of the Pezinok Wine Cellars. The museum also organises temporary exhibitions abroad (e.g., the Vinohrady, wine and people exhibition presented in September 2005 in the European Parliament in Strasbourg and later in Vienna and Milotice, Czech Republic).
The institution has its own sommelier along with professional employees and technical staff.

  • We attended summer art workshop for children and it was great, as well as the current exhibition showing the past of the region from historical, archaeological and ethnological point of view. Every section of the exhibition also had "kids zone" with some hands-on activity.
  • Cozy, innovative, and welcoming. This cozy little museum is dedicated to the history of wines in the Little Carpathian region. The staff was very welcoming. The permanent exhibits are the equipment used in the wine making and sketches and texts describing the life in the wine producing areas. There is an audio guide for rent. It is quiet useful. You get a lot of information. The ticket include one wine sampling at their yard and the ticket itself is a wine decanter. You can test your knowledge on the aroma of the wine. This is the first museum I have come across that is closed for lunch break (1200-13:00). Post visit they collect filled-in feedback form from visitors. Check their website for updates on temporary exhibitions and events. They organize wine tasting sessions too.
