Hungary's Secretary of State declared 2017 as the year of Szt. László of Hungary. This presentation will outline the achievements of this King of Hungary who reigned from 1077 - 1095 and was canonized in the Roman Catholic Church on June 27, 1192 by Pope Celestine III. Legends depict him as a pious knight-king and call him "the incarnation of the late-medieval Hungarian ideal of chivalry." He is a popular saint in Hungary and neighboring nations, where many churches are dedicated to him.Read more...
This new exhibit gives us the opportunity to view and enjoy beautiful art and artifacts coming to the Museum from a private collection. Beautifully presented, the artifacts range from paintings to needlework, and as such, are items that represent a broad range of Hungarian fine art, applied art and folk art. The Exhibit is further enriched with compelling material presented on a large screen TV and smaller touch computers; they help the visitor became familiar with creative work such as porcelain manufacturing in Hungary and other forms of creative art.
Mikulás Bácsi visited the Hungarian Museum to the delight of children young and old. But before he arrived, our young visitors had the opportunity to enjoy a wonderful puppet show, and to work at many many hands-on activities that helped them learn about our Hungarian culture.
