2019 Spring Lecture Series

Saturday, Mar. 9th           Hungary in the EU:  Expectations and Challenges and the 2019 Parliamentary Elections, presented by Dr. Zsolt Hetesy, Department Chief of Mission, Hungarian Embassy

Dr. Hetesy will discuss the meaning of membership in the European Union (EU).  He will describe how the EU is structured; what the advantages and obligations of membership are; how representatives are elected to the European Parliament; what the different political parties and groups in the EU are; and how Hungarians in Hungary view the EU today; and why there is continued criticism, and even the threat of censure toward Hungary.


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!
