Kálmán Mikszáth Memorial House, Sklabina is the early 19th-century house in which the family of writer Kálmán Mikszáth settled in 1852. To this day the house remains in the ownership of relatives of the Mikszáth family. Kálmán Mikszáth himself spent his childhood here and returned while he was studying in Rimavská Sobota and Banská Štiavnica. The house was restored during the second half of the 20th century and a memorial exhibition on the writer, his life and work was opened in three rooms of the house in 1978. Of special interest are the writer's personal objects and a set of editions of his books in various languages.
