The Museum is reopening its doors and we hope you come and visit us!

We are pleased to announce that the Hungarian Museum will be open two days a week, Thursdays and Fridays, beginning on July 2nd. This first step in reopening our Museum to the public invites visitors to explore the rich material on exhibit and also to browse through the lovely items in our Gift Shop. We are mindful of the care we need to take to ensure the safety of all our visitors, and are following specific guidelines for reopening museums in Ohio. If you wish to call for an appointment visit, during regular hours, please call Alex Kezdi at 216-476-9939.  We look forward to welcoming you to this jewel of Hungarian culture on the shores of Lake Erie!

In the meantime we are planning our Fall 2020 programming wherein we will explore various topics of interest.


2019 Vintner Dinner- a wonderful event!

Saturday evening, October 19, and the weather was like a soothing autumn whisper, the kind of evening that beckons us to the golf club where good food, good wine and good company come together for a congenial evening. The Hungarian melodies performed by Harmonia, the Hungarian wines imported from vineyards around Tokaj, Sopron, Pannonhalma, and the company of friends of the Museum, all combined to make for a successful fundraising event to support the mission of our Museum. This year we honored Ted Horvath, Steve Szappanos and Zsuzsa Szappanos, three individuals who have given selflessly of their time and talent to help the Museum become the Hungarian gem that it is in Downtown Cleveland. The best way to convey the elegant yet lively atmosphere of the evening, is through the many photographs that give us a photo-lens view of good times in a lovely setting, good friends tasting good wine, and the warmth of a fine Magyar event. Thanks everyone for coming, and if you couldn't join us this year, we hope to see you next year!


Hungarian Heritage Night at the Ballpark

Once again the Museum participated in the Lake Erie Captain's annual Hungarian Heritage Night at the Ballpark. Along with the Hungarian Cultural Center of Northeast Ohio and the William Penn Fraternal Association, the Museum helped celebrate our heritage with youngsters through face-painting. Since the Captains initiated this evening of Hungarian Heritage Night at the Ballpark, the Museum has offered the children who come to the game the fun of having Hungarian folk motifs or the ancient Hungarian Runic writing painted unto their cheeks, forearms, and hands. Meeting folks with no Hungarian connection as well as those who do share our Hungarian heritage has earned many friends for our Museum. This event is a fine melding of the American favorite past time with Hungarian culture.
