Schaubmars mill (Schaubmarov mlyn) in Pezinok, in western Slovakia, is considered the biggest mill on a brook in Slovakia and also one of the biggest in Europe. It is the cultural and technical monument, which represents the type of yeoman mills from the 16th to 18th centuries.

The mill is situated in Cajla – the urban districts of the town Pezinok, lying below the mountain range of Little Carpathians. The yard with mill contains several big buildings in the Baroque style. The mill is simple with water wheel and fairly well preserved machine from 1913.  The noble family of Pálffy had it constructed in 1767 and since 1857 four generations of family Schaubmar, who moved her from Bavaria, owned and ran the mill.

Now the mill shelters an exhibition of the Slovak National Gallery, which moved here in 1997. The Gallery is the first and only of its kind in Slovakia. More than hundred paintings and statues of outstanding naďve artists and an international collection of naďve artists from Croatia, France, Italy, Czech Republic and Brazil are exhibited here.
