The most significant part of the Collection of Arts and Crafts is the gold religious items which are predominantly from the Spiš region, collection which was built continuously from the 1960s. They represent the high level of the goldsmith craft of this region from the 15th to 18th centuries. Chalices from the second half of the 15th century and the beginning of the 16th century are the most precious exhibits.

The collection of tin table ware from the 17th and 18th centuries, which incorporates tankards, jugs and candle holders is also extensive. The glass, faience and porcelain items are more individual pieces than integral collections and are mostly from the Czech and Austrian manufactures of the 18th and 19th centuries.

The estate from the Strážky Chateau, which was placed under the administration of the SNG in 1972 after the death of the last owner of the chateau, countess Margita Czóbelová, significantly contributed to the enrichment of this collection. The abundantly carved door with intarsia with architectonic motifs, probably of Kežmarok origin from the 16th century, is one of the most valuable items of the original interior. Porcelain dining sets, coffee and tea sets and drinking ware were preserved only as the torso. The Meissen tea set from the 18th century with paintings by J. G. Höroldt (1696 - 1755) are among the most valuable pieces.
