The Centre of Koloman Sokol was established in 2002. It is situated in the centre of Liptovský Mikuláš, in the oldest secular building from the 15th century, which was a seat of the feudal noble Pongrác‘s family.

The building formed a small fortification together with the church of St.Nicolaus and was supposedly washed by waters of the Váh River. There is a permanent exhibition of the works of important Slovak graphic and painting artist Koloman Sokol (1902 – 2003), who was born in Liptovský Mikuláš, worked in Prague, Paris, Mexico and from the end of the forties lived in USA. Exhibition consists of graphic works and a collection of drawings which the artist donated to Slovakia. The exhibition is supplemented by documentary materials, facts and photographs.
