Hanság Museum Collection - Mosonmagyaróvár

Phone number: (96) 204-322
The 102 year old Hanság Museum of Mosonmagyaróvár belongs to the oldest museums of Hungary. The association which set up the museum was founded in 1882 under the name of 'Historic and Archeological Association of Moson County.' The idea came from Ede Ivánfi, the history teacher of the local Piarist High School. Throughout his lifetime he kept trying to establish a museum all over the country, he succeeded in Mosonmagyaróvár, a town with a population of less than 3000.

The town was the chief town of the county, which meant that many institutions and offices were located there. Ivánfi found supporters for the museum among the officers, teachers, doctors, and the lawyers.

Only seven people showed up at the first general assembly of The Historic and Archeological Association on 2, September, 1882. This fact did not hinder the ones present to discuss the constitution and declare the foundation of the association.

The collection of the museum first was located in the hall of the Town House and later, from 1887 it was placed in the County Hall. The ever increasing collection proved to be small soon. In 1904 the convention of the visitors declared that a new building was to be built.

By 1912 the neoclassic building with its pillars was completely ready. The collected materials were moved over the next spring to the new commodious building. The Museum Of Mosonmagyaróvár opened in October, 1913.

After WWI the institution was supported by neither the Counties nor the National Conservancy of the Museums and Libraries. On account of that, the museum aimed at creating collections of ethnography, natural sciences, local history, and fine art. Since no founding was provided, the members of the Association donated the museum.

In 1844-45 the same happened again. According to data from 1946, 3000 gold coins were damaged which meant a 4300 gold coins worth loss. The Roman medal collection of 17 pieces of gold money, and the medal-and seal collection from WWI were almost completely lost. Almost 100 stuffed animals, textiles, and the most interesting pieces of the history of war did too. The Association disbanded after WWII.

The Institution was nationalized under the name of The Museum of Hanság. In 1962 its supervising institution was the Directory of Museums of Győr Sopron County. In 1982 the oldest monument of the town, the Cselley House was attached to it, where the exhibition of applied arts, the stone collection from the Roman age, and the Gyurkovich collection were exhibited.

A taste of the exhibition
One of the most tragic events during the Revolution of 1956 in Hungary was the volley-firing in Mosonmagyaróvár. On 26 October 1956, 1200-2000 men unarmed arrived at the barracks of the immigration officers singing the national anthem, reciting the "Szózat" and singing Kossuth songs. Immigration officers for the AVO instructed by the captain István Dudás set up machine guns and light machine guns right away. continue
