Exhibition presented at the occasion of the 150th anniversary of the birth of Jozef Murgaš, scientist (1864-1929).
Jozef Murgaš was an inventor, botanist, painter and Roman Catholic priest. His most important achievement was the wireless transmission of the spoken word in front of witnesses, for which he has been recognized as one of the inventors of radio. On 27 April 1905 he achieved the full transmission for the first time.
