Medieval open-air museum opens in Szigethalom

Medieval open air museumAn open-air museum showcasing artifacts from medieval times opened in Szigethalom, a town 24 kilometers from Budapest, on July 14. According to, the opening of the permanent exhibition is the first step towards turning a 32-hectare former barracks area into a medieval village.

Emese Park (European Medieval Settlement) is operated by the Őskultúra Alapítvány, a foundation with the aim of preserving ancient Hungarian culture. In an 800-sqm former hangar, they have established a medieval knights hall furnished with period tables, chairs and thrones, while artifacts from the period are on display.

The village will be established later in front of the knights hall where several houses, workshops and a church will be constructed.
