The Homeland Museum, Hanušovce nad Topľou is a regional museum with responsibility for documenting the history and living and non-living nature of the Vranov nad Toplou District. Opened in 1975, it is located in Hanušovce Mansion, a Renaissance-Baroque mansion built at the turn of the 18th century, the most characteristic feature of which is its massive corner towers. The interiors and facade of the mansion boast rich stucco decoration.

The museum contains two principal exhibitions; the History of Vranov nad Toplou District exhibition presents the history of the region through collections from archaeology, history and ethnography, while the Natural Features of Vranov nad Toplou District exhibition provides a cross-section of living and non-living nature in the region from the Mesozoic down to present times.
