Genial Penkala

Meet Eduard S. Penkala, a native of Mikuláš. This world-renowned inventor brought to the world a mechanical pencil and an improved patent for an ink pen, which can still be seen in stores. In addition, you can take home an original patent on reason.

We look forward to seeing you every Friday from July 9 to August 27, 2021 at 6:00 pm in front of the Janko Kráľ Museum in Liptovský Mikuláš. An interactive tour with the participation of the genius himself awaits you, culminating in a brilliant quiz. You will thus become the bearers of a true patent on reason.

The event is suitable for families with children. For epidemiological reasons, capacity is limited.
