After the first democratic elections, in the autumn of 1990, the elect Győző Takács suggested at the foundation meeting of the election body that it would be a good idea to open a village museum in the village. Part of the elects thought that it was already too late as most of the things were gone and were collected by others. Others thought that it was the last moment to begin to realize a museum.

At the next meeting 47. the committee designated the house at 47 Rákóczi street to be bought for the museum. The official status of the building had to be changed. This procedure lasted half a year. The decree that the building was ready to host the museum came in the sprin.

After that, an advertisement in the Village News asked the villagers to collect material for the new museum. The collecting work was supervised by Mrs. Osvath and Győző Takács. Young people and students checked attics and old belongings of the villagers. The material grew fast from month to month. The Village News published the name of all who gave donations. We also received donations from neighbouring villages, lots of objects and photos. Many even offered their family photos.

We placed the photos on pageants borrowed from the Budapest Museum of Transportation. The self-government fulfilled the maintenance tasks. Enthusiastic people sent flowers for the garden in front of the building. The representatives decided on a Village Day which was awaited by enthusiasm. The day designated for it was Anna's day.

Everybody in the village was preparing for the first village day. Then, the big day arrived, the last Sunday of July, 1990. It was a little murky day. However, the enthusiastic young people danced all the way through the village. We inaugurated a memorial park on the 750th anniversary of our village. After the ceremony, the people walked to the museum. There the celebration continued with the villagers singing folk songs and dancing. Győző Takács made a speech first and then the Mayor János Kerékgyártó inaugurated the Village Museum of Sajóhídvég.

Hundereds of people have visited it ever since it's opening. The visitors speak of the museum with acknowledgement. School groups often come to visit from schools nearby. The preparation for the first village day bought together a community who founded the István Széchenyi Village Association of Sajóhídvég with 24 members in 1992. The Association took patronage of the Village Museum and swore to help grew the number of material. This work has been going on for years. We help in cleaning, organizing, we provide security at Village Days.

The number of material in the museum grew gradually in the past ten years. We built a smaller version of a beehive oven, the loom was put into operation by Mrs Marcis Erzsébet Nagy. Mrs Fábián donated a plane counter to us that was inherited by Mrs Nagy. We placed tools of carpenters on it. We have a number of objects waiting in the storage, as well as photos and documents. The garage with the showing of agricultural equipment is also full.

We are very proud of our collection. We take care of and augment this collection for our children and the posterity.

"We are in this world to be at home somewhere in it".
