Our permanent exhibition - through the presented icons, the iconostasis carvings of the 17 - 18th centuries, 16 - 19th century liturgical objects and books, goldsmith works, chalices and discoses, costume, textiles painted or decorated with graphics, relic shawls, holy shrouds and church flags - provides an inspection into an important but a little known part of North-Eastem Hungary's several hundred-year-old meta-Byzantine culture.

The objects originating from already non-existing wooden churches and having been preserved in late Baroque Greek Catholic churches embrace several centuries of the history and culture of Greek Catholicism: I. The formation of the local Greek Catholic Church and its oldest mementoes in existence. Late-Renaissance in Carpathian Art. II. The art of the local Greek Catholic Church and the Baroque. III. Tradition and Innovation. Post-Byzantine art in the 19-20th century.
