The first church to be built on castle hill was that constructed for the bishopric of Eger which was founded by St. Stephen. It was succeeded by a cathedral built in the romanesque and gothic styles. The bishop's castle, which was fortified after the Tatar invasion of 1241, underwent continual improvement up until the beginning of the eighteenth century. As a result of the heroic defence of the castle against the Turks in 1552 Eger Castle won renown and gained a patriotic significance as a symbol of Hungarian resilience. The following exhibitions can be seen within the walls of the István Dobó Castle Museum. continue
Permanent exhibitions
Sixty Effects
Through sixty influences from sixty years, the exhibition tells about the museum's significant periods. It introduces the archaeological, historical, ethnographic, literary historical and artistic research work carried out in Heves County and the city of Eger and showcases outstanding artefacts and the process of restoration and artefact protection. continue
Heroes\
Heroes' Hall, situated on the ground floor of the Bishop’s Palace, commemorates the greatest figures of Eger Castle. The red marble cover of István Dobó’s tombstone, depicting the heroic commander dressed in battle armour, was brought here in 1965. continue
Weapons Exhibition - Muster of Arms
Chronologically and geographically, the collection covers a wide range of weapons from the Middle Ages to the World War I, from Europe to Africa and the Middle East. In addition to the Ottoman weapons and the contemporary Hungarian arms, that form the backbone of the collection, the exhibition also seeks to interpret the development of weaponry and the revolutionary impact of gunpowder. continue
