The members of the Habsburg royal family visited Banská Štiavnica several times. As Banská Štiavnica belonged to a number of significant mining towns in the Austrian-Hungarian Monarchy, emperors paid attention to its development and progress in mining. The imperial visits were always connected with pompous arrangements for the emperors and their entourage. Since then many collection items have been preserved and are displayed in the Kammerhof of the Slovak Mining Museum in Banská Štiavnica. The article contains the list of all collections items exhibited in the museum.
