Museum of Pavol Országh Hviezdoslav (2.2.1849 - 8.11.1921) was a Slovak poet, dramatist, translator, and for a short time, member of the Czechoslovak parliament. First, he wrote in a traditional style, but later became influenced by parnassism and modernism.

The exhibition is part of the P.O. Hviezdoslav Literary Museum, which was opened on 13 November 1954, the 33rd anniversary of Hviezdoslav's funeral. The museum is the oldest literary museum in Slovakia. It is housed in the historic building of the Čaplovič Library in Hviezdoslav Square in Dolný Kubín.

The exhibition, in three rooms, brings us closer to the life and work of one of the most realistic, lyrical and epic authors of Slovak literature from the turn of the 20th century – poet, playwright, translator and lawyer Pavol Országh Hviezdoslav (2 February 1849, Vyšný Kubín - 8 November 1921, Dolný Kubín). Text and images are accompanied by genuine personal mementoes from the estate of the poet. These include his study, part of his salon, some clothing, anniversary gifts and personal effects. The exhibition is complemented by works by the painter Academician Eva Trizuljaková inspired by Hviezdoslav's Bloody Sonnets lyrical cycle.

In front of the building is a monumental work by the sculptor Academician Fraňo Štefunka, a bronze, larger-than-life statue of P.O. Hviezdoslav. Next to the statue are four horizontal blocks with relief decoration and texts of the four areas of Hviezdoslav's work.
