The assembly hall of the Nádasdy castle
In the 1980's a members of the former Nádasy Hussar Regiment donated items they once used to the Nádasdy Ferenc Museum, collected in Vienna. This is how the only Hussar History Exhibition in the world came to being.

The visitors will be acquainted with the development and history of the most Hungarian light cavalry, its origins dating back to the King Matthias era and to its final days following WWII.

The articles of personal use, documents, uniforms, furniture and photos on display will aid the visitors to have an insight into the life of the cavalry. A separate room remembers the role of Hussars in equestrian sports.

The nicest and most famous room in the Nádasdy Ferenc Museum is the Assembly Hall that was finished in the middle of the 17th century. It was commissioned by the judge Ferenc Nádasdy III whose grandfather intended to remember the famous 'Black Bey' when he had the most outstanding battles his ancestors fought painted on the ceiling by Hans Rudolf Miller of Vienna. The two frescos were finished in 1653 with the figure of the Black Bey on one of them.

In 1769 the then owner Ádám Szily commissioned the most sought for Baroque painter of western Hungary, István Dorffmaister, to paint scenes of the Old Testament on the walls. He painted the stories of David and Goliath or Samson and Delilah, among others. In the latter, the artist also reflected on the circumstances of the work.

A magnificent gilded cabinet ornamented with a landscape painting, with secret drawers, from the 17th century is also to be seen in the Assembly Hall. The museum purchased the cabinet from the Ocskay family.
