The temporary exhibition tries to show days of the Revolution of 1848-49 in Óbuda and the country in separate sections.

The first section presents the First Danube Steam Boat Association Óbuda Shipyard

In 1945, following the initiation of the count István Széchenyi, the Óbuda Shipyard was established producing the first military steamboat in 1848 named for the minister ‘Mezaros’. We know that workers at the shipyard and the leaders joined the War of Independence in great number. Óbuda obeyed the Austrian authorities only of necessity since Óbuda enjoyed the same state as any free royal town based on the law of 1848. We know that in June 1848 the minister of social welfare armed workers at the shipyard.

The Zichy Castle - National Clothing Committee

When the War of Independence broke out, the castle and attached buildings hosted the Óbuda Military Clothing Committee of the Emperor and Royal Army. In October 1848, the revolutionary government ordered the establishment of the National Clothing Committee modernizing the royal clothing committee. Until the yielding of Budapest in January 1849, ten thousands of soldiers uniform and accessories were in the plant. Among them were the boots. (both left and right foot boots were pulled on the same tree.)
