The permanent exhibition "We Hungarians" first opened in October 2014. Its aim is to show us Hungarians why being Hungarian is a good thing, what we can be be proud of and what we have given to the world. Foreign visitors can gather a wealth of information about Hungarian culture, our historical and scientific accomplishments, the beauty of our land, our flavoursome dishes, sporting achievements, the world famous Rubik's games, in other words, what we Hungarians are like.

Finding a common thread to bring the exhibition's many themes into a coherent unit was difficult. The final choice fell upon ten Hungarian words regarded as the most beautiful by Dezso Kosztolanyi, a famous author, poet and translator loved by generations. On 19th November, 1933 he wrote in Pesti Hírlap:

“At the threshold of every language, a new world begins. A new realm of beauty with its own intellectual and emotional laws. So, what are Hungarian’s ten most beautiful words? My response, and it is an arbitrary one, one that says as much of me as it does of our language, is as follows: flame (láng), pearl (gyöngy), mother (anya), autumn (ősz), virgin (szűz), sword (kard), kiss (csók), blood (vér), heart (szív), grave (sír).”

The "We Hungarians" exhibition organises around each of these ten words an assortment of accomplishments that we Hungarians can be proud of.
