Nagy Imre Memorial House




Our exhibition is presented by our historian-museologist colleague but an audioguide is also available (in Hungarian and English languages). Our colleague keeps „unconventional history lessons” to secondary school students following a phone appointment. The Memorial House presents the lifepath of Imre Nagy martyr Prime Minister, and the 1956 Revolution. As a historical context for better intelligibility, our exhibition also presents the events of the 20th century. So during the unconventional history lesson, students acquire expertly explained information about the most important events in 100 years’ history. At the end of the lesson they accomplish tests that are evaluated by our colleague, who also answers the remaining questions. The most successful students get rewards from our published issues.
Related to our national holiday, before and after the 23rd of October it is possible for school classes, history study groups, university groups, to organize their own celebration in the hall of the Memorial House with a capacity of 45 people, or in good weather in the pleasant garden (next to the bust of Imre Nagy and his associates’ plaque).
To history teachers we also recommend our videos in the Documents submenu (original film footages of Imre Nagy, contemporaries, historians’ reports, lectures on the martyr Prime Minister, the era and the Revolution), which we are offering as teaching aids. In the Memorial House you can purchase our publications. (Foundation menu – Publications) Please feel free to contact us, our team is always at your disposal.
