Within the frames of the Museum of the Year 2015 competition organized by the Pulszky Society – Hungarian Museum Association the permanent exhibition in the Sőregi House in the Bodrogközi Múzeumporta in Cigánd, Hungary (HUSK/1101/1.3.1/0244) won the special award of the evaluation committee. The museum also received an acknowledgement letter for the extraordinary community work performed in the region. Congratulations!
In 1997 the Pulszky Society – Hungarian Museum Association initiated, and since then has been organising the Museum of the Year award competition. Since 2011 the Exhibition of the Year award has also been given out. The aim in both cases is to find and promote those Hungarian museums whose performance was outstanding on all fields of museum activity, or had an excellent and visitors-friendly exhibition in the given year. In the assessment process representatives of other professional NGOs and the cultural government participate. The announcement of the results, after an all-round evaluation process is an important and integral part of the Museum Festival (or Weekend) held in each May in the National Museum’s garden in Budapest, also with the contribution of the Society. *
