Hungarian ethnographic research primarily focuses on learning about our past and preserving our traditions. In the 21st century, its main task is to draw on the past to provide us with challenges and interesting things to do in the present. After all, 20th-century peasants worked and had fun, provided for themselves and their families and celebrated feast days, just as people do today.
Although we are in the heart of Budapest, we would like to give a taste of the spiritual, material and architectural heritage of our country through various folk relics and interactive elements. The objects on display in our Ethnographic Experience Centre preserve what is now just a memory but used to be a living material culture of everyday life.
Our aim is to raise awareness of the diverse Hungarian cultural heritage and to help anyone who would like to connect with the Hungarian tradition.
Our Experience Centre is free of charge for our guests.
