The two-storey Dezső Laczkó Museum, decorated with red sandstone, is in the shadow of huge trees at the edge of Erzsébet Park. The former Bakonyi Museum awaits its visitors with permanent and temporary exhibitions all round the year.
The permanent exhibition informs those interested about the past of Veszprém and its surroundings. The exhibitions are based on more than 100 years of collection.
The forefather of today’s museum opened– owing to the work of director Dezső Laczkó – in 1904. Then mainly archaeological and natural science finds were displayed here. The expansion of the collection necessitated the acquisition of a separate building – today’s Dezső Laczkó Museum – that made it possible to display these valuable assets properly. The hall of the building is decorated with a painting by Erzsébet Udvardi and several statues.
The 100-year-old four-storey cultural palace of the centre of Veszprém was constructed on the basis of István Medgyaszay’s design. The Veszprém County Museum and Library, the first public library of the country – today a goldmine for hundreds of researchers – as well as the databank and photo collection operated here. There are academic and educational lectures and events related to the exhibitions and collections, museum pedagogical classes so important for the youth in order to get to know our county, guided tours and the Museum Friends’ Club awaits those interested. In the souvenir shop you can buy academic and popular-science publications related to the findings of the researchers, copies of works of art and folk art products.
