It is possible to love those who we know. To love our country we have to know it. To know the past is just as important as the root is important for a tree, a base for a house. Without these we are imbalanced. Everybody has a past that is scarred in our memory. Certain events are often related to certain places. Who would be able to tell the memories hidden in a hide and seek game played among ruins or the wonderful will to live of a tiny plant that grew in the gap of wall? At the end, these are the events that influence where we feel we belong.

The little house among the multi-storeyed buildings at 15 Jókai Street is a perfect example to ponder on. The house built at the beginning of the 19th century was rebuilt into a house holding exhibitions in 1986. It was a joyful event in a town where old houses that remained intact after WWII were demolished one after another.

The exhibition was opened in the framework of Várpalota Days. The opening speech was held by the manager of the museum Dr. Törőcsík Zoltán. He emphasised that the little house recalls the memories of the town surrounding a castle from the middle ages. He declared about the significance of the exhibition that the collecting work of the civilians betrayed their love for their town and appreciation of the past.
