The city’s museum was founded in 1930. Its exhibition on local history also provides an insight into the long centuries of the Reformed church. You can recognize several church-connected Debrecen buildings (churches, school, consistorial house) on the coloured lithographies and drawings made by museologist Lajos Zoltai.
It is definitely worth to take a look at the requisites of the Old City House and the chief justice’s office, the archaeological finds from the Dobozi Cemetery (16-17th century clothes, goldsmith’s works), the tools of the Reformed College’s fire brigade, the guilds-related memorabilia, and the objects originally belonging to the local churches and bell towers. The exhibition alludes to the botanical tradition born in the Reformed College via evoking the atmosphere of the old Botanical Garden, the Memorial Garden and the tombstone of the poet Csokonai. The memorabilia of the bookbinder’s workshop and the printing house founded in the Age of Reformation also embodies an important aspect of the local Protestant identity.
Opening time: 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. except Mondays
