19th century painting, sculpture

Our exhibition, presenting 19th-century art, surveys the work of almost 100 years, beginning in the late 18th century. Here we can see almost all the important works from the time of National Romanticism that have for generations determined the national visual memory. Including such major emblematic works of historical painting as The Women of Eger, The Mourning of László Hunyadi and The Christening of Vajk, the most significant historical paintings by Viktor Madarász, Mór Than, Sándor Liezen-Mayer, Bertalan Székely, and Gyula Benczúr fill two impressive rooms on the first floor.

In the adjacent rooms the visitor can see landscapes by Károly Markó as well as major works by József Borsos, Miklós Barabás, Mihály Zichy, Gyula Benczúr, and Bertalan Székely. A separate room presents the work of the greatest renewers of 19th-century Hungarian art: Pál Szinyei-Merse, Mihály Munkácsy and László Paál. The one-time ballroom of the palace displays works of Naturalist and early plein-air painting that in many instances paved the way to Modernism. Works by László Mednyánszky, Géza Mészöly, Lajos Deák-Ébner, Simon Hollósy, and István Csók form the backbone of this unit.

Erzsébet Schaár: The castle of the duke with blue beard
The collection of the 60 small and large plastic art works was gifted to Székesfehérvár by the Ministry of Culture and the heirs of the artist. These materials were later supplemented by a series of works purchesed from Erzsébettől Schaár (Kóré, Sitting in the armchair), and the hairs (Ólomfal, Spaces opening into each other, Door with a figure, etc.) continue
The new institution of the Town Museum of Paks is formed from the local historic-ethnographic collection. The Self-government of the town decided its establishment in 1993 and the construction works began in 1994. continue
The museum building
The plant plays crucial role in saving buffalo and buffalo genes in Hungary. It is also the centre of information about the animal where the visitors can meet the animals in person. continue
The museum building
The Municipal Museum first opened on 11 November 1994 in the tarnished national building known as Ispita. In 1997 the Esterházy Palace, where the official residence is at present, was acquired. In 1998 the Margit Kovács and the Miklós Borsos permanent exhibitions were added to our programs in the original edifices. In 1999 we broadened our programs by the Graphics Workshop of Győr, in 2000 the first creative house, in 2004 the second creative house. From 2006 we also make use of the building of the Synagogue together with the university. continue
The museum building
Since its establishment, the Museum of Literature has organised almost 500 exhibitions and issued more than 300 scholarly and popularising publications and exhibition catalogues. We hope that our work over the past fifty years has earned us a position in scientific life. continue
Medieval Village
The main idea was to present the village that was excavated. The objects mirror the every day life of the villages in the Árpád era. Every house, furnace etc. are in their original size made following the structure and proportions of the findings. The material employed was those that were used in the era of Árpád. continue
Storno Collection
Our exhibition displays the collection of the family in the rooms that the family utilised between 1875 and 1984. The enteriours furnished by old relics and the art works of the family give us a faithful picture of the dwelling cultutóre at the end of the 19th century. Visitors may see valuable pieces of furniture, weapons, glass and porcelain works, etc. continue
