7) Slovak Republic: The definition of the museum in the Slovak Republic used by members of the museum profession is identical with that defined by ICOM. Moreover, the Act of the National Council of the Slovak Republic No. 206/2009 of the Code defines the museum in Article 2, Section 5 as follows: „The museum is a specialised corporate entity or an organisational body of the corporate entity, which based on its exploration and scientific research, acquires objects of cultural value, which it professionally manages as a collection items. These items are scientifically researched and make available to the public especially for the purposes of study, cognition, education and aesthetic experience through specific means of museum communication.“ In Slovakia there are museums and museum facilities. Museum facility by law is "A museum facility or gallery facility is a specialized legal entity or an organizational unit of a legal entity or a specialized facility that acquires objects of cultural value and makes them available to the public for the purpose of knowledge and aesthetic experience through specific means of museum presentation or gallery presentation." It´s like lower grade of museums, they have to present cultural objects, but they don´t need to do for example scietific research. In this statistics are information only about museums and galleries from Register of Museums anf Galleries of Slovak Republic.
8) Slovak Republic: In statistics in Slovakia museums and galleries are two separate groups, inspite of for both groups one law is mandatory. There are 94 museums registered in the Register of Museums and Galleries of the Slovak Republic, but National Slovak Museum has 18 specialized museums, which are reported separately in the statistics. That´s why here is the number of the museums 112 plus 25 galeries.
9) Slovak Republic: Categories 2b, 2c and 2d, especially 2c in Slovakia are not applicable: science and technology museums are split from ethnology museums; 2c – most of the "other" museums are complex/local or regional history museums which can be included in 2b category where we have enlisted only specialized art, archaeology and history museums. The complex museums are very important and numerous in the national museum structure.
