Museum of Ethnography


The Ethnographic Museum presents the ethnographic relics of Baranya County's extremely rich national and ethnic past, and the exhibition presents the diverse folk art of the Hungarian, German and South Slavic ethnic groups of Baranya County. Upstairs, a 19th-century Ormánság house interior evokes the Hungarian housing culture of the old times.

Baranya County, with its varied ethnic composition and ethnographic values that have evolved over the centuries, has a unique colour in South Transdanubia.The Ethnographic Department of the Janus Pannonius Museum opened its permanent exhibition in 1996, the year of the millennium, which provides a comprehensive picture of the traditional culture of the ethnic groups living in the area, from the millennium and the pre-millennium to the 1950s.

In the first room, you can learn about the geography of the county and the links between the different ethnic groups. Photographs and drawings show the types of settlements in the area, the diversity of building techniques and their development. A selection of regional furniture illustrates the world of the village tastes of the past. A variety of utensils illustrate the art of the shepherds who made the carvings.

In the second room, visitors can learn about traditional Baranese textiles, weavings and sewing, and the costumes worn by certain ethnographic groups.

In the third room, folk pottery and stoves from the once diverse crafts of the county are on display, from recent archaeological finds to folk earthenware objects made in the Zsolnay factory.In the fourth room, the visitor can see the most famous folk tradition of Baranya, the mourning procession. In addition to folk instruments, you can also see objects of religious folk life.
