Museum was founded in 1912 by a group of enthusiasts led by Arthur and Julius Kűrthi grouped into Liptov Museum Society. The original seat of the museum was in an old vicarage from the 15th century, where the mausoleum of Andrej Hlinka is situated now. Since 1937, the museum resides in a representative building built in 1930s, and designed by a significant architect from Ružomberok, Wojciech Donner (1901-1945). The town of Ružomberok is a patron of this new museum building, one of the first purpose-built buildings of its kind in Slovakia. Building was conducted by a local builder Július Záchenský.

Museum exhibitions offer a comprehensive overview of animate and inanimate nature of the region Liptov, important archaeological findings and sites, history of the region Liptov dated from ancient times to present times, and an opportunity to enjoy the jewels of local art-historical monuments exhibited in the Gallery of Sacred Art and Exposure of Štefan Šovánka. Special attention is devoted to the history of paper production in Slovakia and a personality of Andrej Hlinka. The offer also includes a number of cultural and educational events, exhibition projects, including national and international shows of art photography, traditionally associated with the creative background of authors in Ružomberok, and with the institution of Liptov Museum.
