Mátra Museum – Gyöngyös

With one of the most significant scientific collections of Hungary, the Mátra Museum can be found in Gyöngyös. The Museum has three units: Orczy Castle, Natural Science pavilion and the park on 2 hectares, which has been declared to be a nature reserve. The three units of the Museum can be visited separately, as well. There are exhibitions on the history of hunting and that on local history in the Museum at present. Its attraction is the mammoth skeleton exhibited in the inner courtyard covered by a glass roof. Modern multimedia and audiovisual devices ensure a real learning experience.
