Excellent small museum with a really good attitude towards children and something for every one (groovy stuffed animals!).
Special mention for the mens' first (=2nd) floor loo, a summum of civilization which immediately made it into my Pantheon: lots of space and high ceiling, great view through the magnificent wooden windows onto the bridge and old town beyond, observation platform, impeccable cleanliness, calm and serenity. Yessss!

Located next to the Belvarosi hid, it stands huge and beautiful! The exibitions were closed (we were there mid January), so we just admired the architecture!

The museum is in a beautiful building in the middle of a very nice park right by the Tisza river. Inside there are great permanent exhibitions but right now there is a cave-man exposition that is really funny and interactive. You can even make photos sitting in Fred Flintstone`s car.
They close at 18.00, so it's recommended to visit right after lunch or in the morning. You can easily spend a couple of hours there.

Ferenc Mora Museum
And spicy fish stew
By Zoran Slavic

Really far from the 1183. deep in the history of European dawn, when Szeged was first mentioned in written documents, a lot of water had passed the river Tisa, on whose bank he founded this city. In addition, as if something unbridled energy of Attila the Hun's head, which has spent enough time in the region, which is now named as Szeged, transferred to the inhabitants of this place. Their enterprise, trade and science in particular, as if such an endless energy inheritance by from ancestors means. On Attila, who was "The Scourge of God", and reminded me terribly spicy fish stew I have unsuccessfully tried to eat at a restaurant on the water, on a barge anchored in Szeged. However, after a few days and several attempts, I succeeded, even enjoying a meal, seductive and full of challenges... I ate fish soup with chunks of catfish; I drank wine with soda, Hungarians say. While the Tisza flowed city that hums coming from power.
The culinary stays on barges were an opportunity to remind you that the Szeged is known as the home of paprika, a spice made from dried, powdered capsicum fruits. Paprika arrived in Hungary in the second half of the 16th century as an ornamental plant. About 100 years later the plant was cultivated as an herb and paprika as we know it was born. Szeged is also famous for their Szekelygulyas, a goulash made with pork, sauerkraut and sour cream. Moreover, famous for their Halasz, fish soup made of carp and catfish.
Sure to make your stay in this town are not only dedicated to the enjoyment of food and music. Which by the way is not so bad? One day we devoted considerable touring and scientifically significant Ferenc Mora Museum. It is an impressive building in the old part of Szeged. 1896 was made to the new, still used in neo-classical style building, Antal Steinhardt and Adolf Lang's plans. And as we approach the palace
imposes upon us an amazing likeness of the object with the White House in Washington. That congruence goes in the series, we are sure that we read the address of the museum. When man immersion in the complexcircuitry of the museum, it becomes clear why it is so important in Hungary. There are no departments of archeology, nature, folk tradition, numismatics, fine arts, theater ... All very functional, meticulously thought out and presented quite modern.
When we left the museum at dusk, Szeged already glowing in the nighttime lighting, and we had a full head of Hungarian history and culture. By the way, we learned that the Ferenc Mora, a famous Hungarian writer by education historian and geographer. He was born into the surrounding Szeged, where he died 1834th
