Kisvárdai museum first - and so far the biggest - collections is the archaeology collection. Significant part of the findings presented are from the castle of Kisvárda. As our city's and wider region's determining the oldest monument, the castle of Kisvárda with its history was an influencing factor in shaping local patriotism.

The collection and the archaeological exhibition includes artefacts excavated by an international luminaries such as Dr. Pál Patay, former archaeologist at the Hungarian National Museum, who discovered in the suburbs of Fényeslitke tubular bases, dishes knives of Tiszapolgár. Bronze depos in our county are famous from Germany to Russia.. None of them are included in the exhibition. The function socket axes, coils arm are commonly raised questions among museum visitors.

No less interesting is the early migrations of people to our region, the emperor era, the Vandals spurs, the infantry warriors weapons. Determination of the ethnic peoples from the Orient commencing in waves seem to be of less importance these days. Did the Slavs or Avars lived in the swamps in Rétköz? Finally, the museum's friends can not miss their favourite era: our conquering ancestors' traces from around Kisvárda. The exhibition first opened iIn 2010, on occasion of the 50th anniversary. It also honours the founder László Makay, all the people who worked for the success of our museum in the last 50 years and István Éri, the head archaeologist at the excavations at the castle.
