2019 Spring Lecture Series

Please plan to join us on the second Saturday of the month beginning at 2 o'clock p.m.

Feb. 9th            Folk Customs of Hungary, presented by Dr. Enikő Bus, Fulbright Scholar

Hungary has a rich and colorful tradition of folk customs.  Dr. Bus will speak about the annual cycle of traditions that are celebrated in Hungary. Starting with the New Year, virtually every month is rich with traditions pertaining to both the calendar year as well as the life cycle.  We will discuss how these traditions have been modified over the years and still celebrated in many meaningful ways.


Our 2018 Vintner Dinner was a wonderful evening! Thanks for supporting our Museum!

The guests arrived, the first wine was served, the appetizers and the pogácsa were tasty! The evening proceeded as planned: fine wine, intimate atmosphere, lovely table settings, good food, and good company.  To add to the ambiance, the reception hour was made all the more memorable by piano music setting the festive atmosphere. The dinner experience was enhanced by the Magyar sounds played by members of Harmonia. Featured wines came from some of the finest wine-growing regions of Hungary: from Tokaj, a 2015 Patricius Furmint and a 2012 Füleky  Pallas Late Harvest; from the Mátra region, a Szőke Mátyás, 2016 Pino Gris (Szürkebarát) and from the same winery, a 2017 Irsai Oliver; from Sopron, a Pfneiszl 2014 Távoli Világ Cuvee. There was something to tempt everyone's palate! Our Honoree for this year's dinner was the Hungarian Cultural Club of Northeast Ohio, and their president, Mary Jane Molnár.


2018 Children's Program

Saint Nicholas, Mikulás Bácsi, visited the Museum on Saturday afternoon, December 8th. He spoke with 35 children, ages 3 through 13. He inquired about their school interests, their hobbies and other activities. His visit was preceded by activities for our young visitors. The adults in their lives had a chance to see the Museum exhibits and to socialize, shop and learn about Hungarian culture through the activities set up for the children. We look forward to seeing the children next year, and until then, we want them to know that they and their families are always welcome to visit the Museum on their own!
