The peasant house built in the style of the great Hungarian plains was a part of the Tessedik Sámuel popular high school established in 1938. This institute was meant for the further education of the peasants. Besides maths, literature, geography and history, subjects like falk music (Bartók, Kodály), ethnography and popular arts were also taught.

Permanent exhibitions

Their embroidery technology was characterized by one colour. Only later did they stitch the red together with the blue. The ornamentation and arts of the local people were developed during the course of time.
