Opening hours: 01.01-31.12.: Tue-Sat 10-18, Sun on prior notice
The most developed museal institute in Northern Bihar is located in the centre of Létavértes. The building was set up by the Calvinist Church of Vértes financed by a 70-million-forint EU project. The ethnographic collection amassed by Dr. István Rozsnyai was moved to this building. The collection that consists of ceramics from the Carpathian Basin is now to be shown at the ornamental ceramics exhibition in the Trans-Tiszanean area.

The Museual Collection of István Rozsnyai is a rare example of how private collections of special value are to be shown to the public.

The building hosting the exhibition is also the location of permanent- and temporary exhibition rooms, a café and an assembly hall. The institute regularly offers museum pedagogical activity, and hosts groups of tourists and children, too.

Also an improvement of the church, a Yurt Camp is open from August 2011. Tradition preserving and gastronomy festivals offered by the institute authentically inform on traditional lifestyle in the region.

Permanent exhibitions
The clean room interior at the Rozsnyai István Museal Collection is to demonstrate life in Kalotaszeg at the 19-20th century. The collection consists of real quality works, including wall ornaments, ceramics and garments.

The material authentically represents peasant culture in Kalotaszeg, now in Romania, the village that once belonged to Bihar.

The ornamental ceramics exhibition presents nearly 1000 items from 70 traditional potter centres, representing the ceramics art of the Carpathian Basin, especially Transylvania, competently.

The material from Zilah and Torda, potter centres that supplied Kalotaszeg (Țara Călatei) with ceramics is extremely interesting. In addition, the visitors will find ceramics by Székely artists, Saxon artists from Barcaság (Burzelnalnd) and Hungarian stove-makers from Bánffyhunyad (Huedin). A group of bottles made in Mezőcsát is a very special one, and we also show beautiful ceramics from Hódmezővásárhely, Mezőtúr, Tiszafüred and Sárospatak. The material also has some items from the Transdanubian region, Mórágy, Siklós, Mohács).

Special items, such as a ceramics collecting box with the image of the Debrecen Church, several Baroque guild vessels, and a 120-cm jug once owned by the potter Kántor family is on display among others.
