The thought of establishing a museum in the area of the lake Balaton first occoured in the last decade of the 19th century. The Balaton Museum Union was formed in June 1897. The archaeological collection of ├ürp├íd Cs├ík was exhibited in the building of the former Economy Learning Center. The natural science department was formed, the library was growing, and J├ínos S├ígi laid the foundations of the ethnography department.
