Nomad Park

On the site beside the horse court we set out to represent the history of the races of the Euro-Asian plains, and all this through archeological relics and ethnographic parallels. Before the Hungarian settlement Huns were one of the nomadic peoples of the region, who changed their life-style in the 10-11th centuries. This change could first of all be put down to the special geographic advantages of the Carpathian Basin. continue

Change of Pace

The exhibition is introduced by the post-1945 changes, works of art created in the spirit of progressiveness but at the same time linked to pre-war antecedents and testifying to a synthesis of styles that existed side by side and influenced each other (Expressionism, Constructivism, Surrealism, etc.). Visitors can see works from the 1950s: genre paintings, depictions of work and workers, and portraits in accordance with the dictatorship's arts policy of the day, these are stylistically homogeneous and follow the themes laid down at this time. In the next rooms there are works by a new generation.

Non-figurative trends existing in parallel appear as adaptations of Abstract Expressionism as well as of (Neo-)Geometrical, Structuralist and Organic endeavours. Figurative tendencies, versions of Pop Art and Hyperrealism, also significant at the time, are on view in the last section. On the corridor opening from the last row of rooms radical Avant-Garde works can be found primarily built on the use of photography, consisting largely of action documentations, and objects.

The museum building
The crypt of the church in the main square of the town, formerly owned by the Dominican order, functioned as a place of burial between 1731-1801 but later it was bricked up. The entrance of the crypt was found again during the renovation work of the church in 1994. In the special climate, the corpses of the crypt had become mummified in a natural way in their coffins. The clothes, the burial accessories and the coffins had been preserved in an outstanding condition. continue

The building of the County House was built in the middle of the last century. The owners were the poor Petrik Family. The building is a typical example of the house of poor peasants. At that time the houses were made with mud wall, the roof was made of wood covered with cane, which was easy to find in the marshes around the village. The setting of the house follows the room-kitchen-inner chamber pattern. continue
