Museums are not the innovations of recent centuries. The first museum opened its gate before the visitors in Alexandria. The goal was the same then as it is today: to share and spread our inestimable value - our culture.

Our enthusiasm about museums was driven by curiosity. How did people live in the past? When was this or that object invented? What does the painter want to express? We are to pose question in order to understand and value the world around us. In year 2000 we asked ourselves the question of where we can find the museums on the Internet. What we found was very little. Actual pieces of information about exhibitions and programmes were also missing. Often the web pages reflected the out-of-date reality of the past. It was then when we decided to make the museum.hu. And now we are here. We have done it at long last. We are eager to present the beauties and values of Hungary through the treasure houses of culture - the museums.

The first Minister of Education of Hungary, József Eötvös spent most of his childhood at his grandparens' property in Ercsi. According to his wii he was burried here in the family grave. The museum was also furnished here, in the guest-house attached to the family mansion.

The Eötvös József memorial hall was formed by the National Pedagogical Library in 1971, after a work of arrangement and collection of several years. The memorial hall was extended by the local council several times. The modern and spectacular exhibition was established by the Pedagogical Museum in 1988. Since 1997 the local government has been caring for the museum.

Besides the exhibition, which attracts about three thousands visitors every year - visitors can search in the continuously growing library and archives which can first of all give help to university and college graduates.
