We would like to welcome you to the first and so far only Deža Hoffmann Museum in the world, which is located directly in his birthplace in the center of Banská Štiavnica. Come and see unique photos taken by fans from around the world, the meticulously renovated historic house, or a 400-year-old mining tunnel.
During his creative life, Dežo Hoffmann produced more than one million photographs. For a photographer who was active in the period from the fifties to the eighties, this is a really impressive number. Not only did Hoffmann take a large number of photographs but, thanks to his talent, he created many high-quality images. However, what brought him the success was not only his artistic talent, but also his attitude to life ― his will to move forward and his desire to do things in the most excellent way possible.

The world-famous photographer from Banská Štiavnica, Dezider “Dežo” Hoffmann, left us an inspiring legacy, to which he testified with his own life. Even from our small country, with faith in the gifts we are given, it is possible to enter the big picture and become a part of history. Our civic association, OZ Rodný dom Deža Hoffmann, aims to further propagate and develop this link. Knock on the door of the "Dežo House" in beautiful Banská Štiavnica; we will be happy to open it for you.
