Parts of the center
Collection of archaeological findings
The special feature of the exhibition is a reconstructed XVII. century woman’s tomb “in situ”, with one of the most beautiful early modern woman’s headdress (socalled párta) in the Carpathian Basin. The life-size puppets show age-old Hungarian and Turkish costumes and armaments.
In the traditional room, furnished with nearly 100 years old furniture, the exhibited object can be touched, and the three-meter-wide traditional trousers can even be tried by visitors.
In the adobe-walled BARN, visitors can find the tools of everyday peasant life and work. Here is the children's favorite, a reconstruction of a working medieval cannon, but you can even make your own commemorative coin.
The award-winning film, "Legend of Szondi", perfectly evokes the heroic siege of Drégely Castle.
The "Holy grave" is an animated historical documentary short film about the history of the castle.
Both movies are not only meaningful but short (20 minutes), entertaining and exciting for children and adults alike.
