The first room evokes the Gothic atmosphere of Pécs's medieval university. Here the visitor can discover the conditions under which the local universitas was created as well as its branches of teaching. With the aid of the floor map of Pécs visitors can step into the medieval city and view the main public buildings. Life-size models bring to life the institute's chancellors, staff and students, through whom, and using texts from contemporary sources, we can learn something of the life of the old university's citizens.

The second room is furnished like a Renaissance studiolo, that is, it evokes the atmosphere of a quiet, academic study of the Renaissance age. The exhibition provides a broad picture of the mutual influence that higher education and the development of the sciences had upon each other from the first medieval universities right up to the Age of Enlightenment.

The better part of the third room is taken up with an introduction to higher education in Pécs. Documents and objects related to the life of the Episcopal Academy of Law have been placed in the display cabinets. The presentation of student life has been coloured by contemporary reminiscences. On the north side of the room we have reconstructed the Bratislava and early Pécs periods of Elizabeth (Erzsébet) University.

The fourth room displays the history of Pécs University and its antecedent institutes from 1950 to the present day. Visitors can view the souvenirs, publications and student life of the ten faculties and practice schools, faculty by faculty, meanwhile discovering the main crossroads of each faculty's history.

The fifth room is the "rector's office", in which visitors can watch films and listen to sound archive material about the university.
