The Somogy County museum is located approximately 50 kilometres south of Lake Balaton. Formerly known as the ‘City Hall’, the Somogy County Museum is an amalgamation of ethnic artefacts marking the history of Somogy County along with an exuberant collection of 20th century Hungarian art donated by Odon- brother of famous Hungarian painter Jozsef Rippl-Ronai. The museum houses permanent exhibitions as well as temporary exhibitions.
Rural Folk Art consisting of wooden carved objects mainly used by peasants and shepherds are the main attraction of the museum. The traditions of the outlawed ‘Betyar’ presented here are a treat to every culture explorer. Archaeological Relicts from the Somogy County are displayed which consist of artefacts from Stone Age to the middle ages.
The Ripple-Ronai Odon 20th Century Fine Art exhibition which is a ‘must-see’ for every visitor, justifies the art-pulse of Hungary. A great place to become one with the history of the city, the museum caters to everybody’s interest.
Presently, the museum’s official name is ‘Rippl- Rónai Town Museum with County’s Right’.
