From January 2019 closed due to renovations!
The most impressive product of the building fever of the millennium in Szeged is the Palace for Public Education built in neo-classicist style in 1896. The entrance hall with Corinthian columns covered by a tympanum, the symmetrical structure and the white walls radiate calm dignity. It was intended to give place to the museum of the city and Somogyi Library. During the directorship of Ferenc Móra (1917-34) the series of exhibitions expanded, storerooms and restoration workrooms were created. Being a writer and a journalist as well, the director took part in ethnographic fieldwork and he made his mark as an archaeologist by doing excavations in the larger surroundings of Szeged. There is also a room in the museum bearing his name with his personal belongings. The museum offers an ethnographic exhibition of crafts in Szeged, a presentation of the history of pharmacy and a permanent collection of fine arts, all these being animated by temporary exhibitions of great value.
