Scientific research is one of the museum staff's main activities. In the field of archaeology, curators employed in the Museum of Archaeology follow on from the work of their predecessors in the SlovakNationalMuseum in Martin (founded in 1908) and in the SlovakRegionalMuseum in Bratislava (founded in 1924). The scientific research tasks of the specialist staff – curators – in the SNM – Museum of Archaeology are assigned by the Scientific Council, which also evaluates their progress.
