Ferenc Kazinczy Museum - Sátoraljaújhely
Address: 3980, Sátoraljaújhely Dózsa György u. 11.
Phone number: (47) 322-351
Opening hours: Tue-Sun 9-17
The monument building of the museum stands near the town center, under house number 11 Dózsa György Rd. On its classicist front wall, above the wrought iron gate, there reads the year of its building: 1827. During the reform era the Zemplén Casino Society operated here, which gathered the progressive intellectuals of the county and the town. The building served as the local council between 1894 and 1950. The museum moved to its present place in 1990.

Main trends of the museum profile are the literature of the enlightment, regional literary history studies, the Kazincy-cult, nature life of Zemplén mountain and the Bodrogköz. The museum welcomes the visitors with a number of permanent and temporal exhibitions.

The museum has a significant collection of natural science and region history. The latter one contains a literary history collection and the historical material of Sátoraljaújhely.

Large part of the natural science collection is made up by the plants and insects collection of Rezső Moldvay. Parts of this unit are: prepared mushrooms, around 60,000 beetles and insects, snails, shells, fishbones, sea animals, birds, mammals and their bones. Here we can also find a lichen collection (10,000 pcs), an egg collection, a butterfly and dragonfly collection and a mollusccs collection. These collections are kept in the Ecologigal Institute of Miskolc.
