Permanent collection: A COLLECTION OF MAPS

In the hall visitors can view drawings of maps, that shows the history of our region. Charts that encompass several centuries, help to explain the geographical, economic and cultural unity of the province, which was fragmented by artificially made boundaries in the early 20th century.

Here we find maps, such as the map of clerk Lazarus from the 16th century (the oldest printed map of Hungary), the manuscript of Lendava and its neighbourhood from 1858, that was made on the basis of military measurements and all the way to a map that shows the “Slovenian” and “Hungarian” cultural region, the Hetés.
