    Virtual reality and 3D in the baroque era

    The chamber exhibition of the Piarist Museum invites online visitors to a real time travel, because it introduces the early representatives of nowadays so popular VR (virtual reality) and 3D images. Our graphical collection hides about 60 pieces of coloured perspective engravings, panorama views that have a unique cultural, media, and art historical importance. These pictures played the role of the internet or television in the 18th century, taking viewers to far away, unreachable lands and cities, imitating the illusion of reality.

    Motorisation in Pécs – Gyula Varga’s car factory

    Pécs was famous not only for the Zsolnay ceramics, but also for Gyula Varga’s car factory, though one can hardly hear about his merits. Our latest selection may offer an enjoyable reading to car lovers primarily. However, the photos of the family Varga revive an exciting period and naturally, you can have an insight into the life of a family as well.

    A great Hungarian and a proud American scientist: his oeuvre is a Hungarikum

    If you ask people in the streets of Hungary about János Neumann, it is likely that they will know his name and will answer: „he is the inventor of the computer”. This is a laurel that was never sought by the scientist, who was born in Budapest, in a house at the corner of Bajcsy-Zsilinszky Street and Báthori Street in 1903, and as a “wonder child” he graduated at the Fasori Evangelical Secondary Grammar School among László Rátz’ students, to become a chemical engineer, and later an internationally renowned mathematician, the Man of the twentieth century.

Besides searching and browsing digitized cultural contents, visitors can view thematic virtual exhibitions from the records of MaNDA’s database, which are widened weekly. Our aim with the exhibitions is to introduce the cultural contents of the database in a new context, in a way that they would never be in the same virtual room otherwise, due to their spatial, legal or formal features. You can see our former exhibitions under this menu.

Establishment of Europeana

During the period of the Swedish EU presidency in April 2001 in Lund, representatives of the then 15 Member States formulated their demand that a breakthrough in the field of cultural digitisation was necessary. One of their most important issues was that a cooperative forum should be created in order to put cultural digitisation in the European dimension and the accessibility and visibility of the European digital cultural heritage must be promoted.
