√Čber Memorial Hall - Baja - Szentistv√°n
Yard of the √Čber Memorial Room
Address: 6500, Baja - Szentistván Jókai Mór utca 19.
Phone number: (79) 324-216
Opening hours: 16.03-18.12.: Wed-Sat 10-16
If we walk down the quiet and norrow J√≥kai street in Baja, the attractive court of the √Čber Memorial House will soon invite us inside, where the visitor is welcomed by the inheritance of S√°ndor √Čber and his two children, S√°ndor √Čber and Anna √Čber. Besides the paintings, drawings and statues, this house keeps the documents of local and literary history, and the ethnographic and falk items collected by the family through decades.

Walking through the √Čber Memorial House, the visitor might ask: what is this place exactly? Is it a gallery? A museum? A folk art collection? It's neither, yet it is a little of each of them. It is a cross section of two hundred years. "As, walking along the eroding, clayey bank of the Danube, you see when the flood came and when the clay deposits formed, you can see in this house when during the last 150 to 200 years the oil lamp burned with high light, when it ran low... Now it has just been refilled..."

(S√°ndor √Čber, Jr., 1981)
