The Museum of Ethnography is one of the oldest institutions in Hungary. It was founded as a subdivision of the Hungarian National Museum in 1872. Its first collection was the East Asian collection of János Xantus. From the 1890s the attention began to focus on the disappearing values of the Hungarian culture and that of our neighbors, relatives, and other continents. continue
Permanent exhibitions
In the area corresponding to the left hemisphere, ceramics of the world are grouped logically, according to geographical area, ceramics centre, and shape, while the right hemisphere area offers an intuitive response to the myriad worlds of ceramics and explores their interconnections. continue
In the collection of the Museum of Ethnography are united more than two hundred thousand individual artefacts, along with several hundred thousand photographs, drawings, manuscripts, audio recordings and films. Here, in the ZOOM exhibition space, this monumental body of material appears in its primordial state, the cast out flotsam of a museal Big Bang. continue
We Have Arrived covers over a century and a half of achievements, discussing everything from the 19th - century efforts that marked the museum’s inception to its very latest acquisitions. Notably, curators have not limited their sights to iconic artefacts: a majority of the more then a hundred items on display here have never before seen the world outside museum storage. continue
