István Bocskai Museum – Our exhibitions

The first museum exhibition in Hajdúszoboszló opened in 1958. The collection was constantly growing, therefore, it was moved to a new place in the 1980s. The buildings of the István Bocskai Museum are situated in the historical town centre in the former lords’ club, the Catholic cultural centre and the dwelling house of a former mayor.

The Legacy of Szoboszló: Earth – Sword – WaterThe Legacy of Szoboszló: Earth – Sword – WaterThe permanent exhibition on the history of the town bears the title The Legacy of Szoboszló: Earth – Sword – Water. It is an interactive exhibition presenting the history of the town in two major thematic units. Various documents and relics show the progress the settlement  made from its first mention in 1075 through its destruction during the Turkish occupation until receiving the privileged status of “hajdú” towns in the 17th century. The exhibition centres around the figure of István Bocskai and the charter of privileges issued by him on 2 September 1606 in Kassa to the hajdú cavalrymen he settled down in the town.  The exhibition centres around the figure of István Bocskai and the charter of privileges issued by him on 2 September 1606 in Kassa to the hajdú cavalrymen he settled down in the town.The exhibition centres around the figure of István Bocskai and the charter of privileges issued by him on 2 September 1606 in Kassa to the hajdú cavalrymen he settled down in the town.The so-called Bocskai flag is not only the symbol of the museum but also a national treasure.

It shows the elaborately decorated objects for special occasions side by side with ordinary tools that acquired their final shapes during everyday life and work.
