Successful Night of Museums at the ELTE University Library and Archives

According to our tradition, this year we joined the Night of Museums series of events, which included craft activities, concerts, guided tours, restoration workshops and an exhibition of books on medicine. 

The programme opened with a concert by the ELTE „Eötvös” Art Ensemble String Quartet in the Aula, featuring works by Mozart, Grieg, Debussy, Elgar, Fauré and Delibes.

Through our building tours, visitors were given an insight into the history of the library and the rooms of the historic building. They were also able to learn about the restoration process, our museum collection, the life and work of Loránd Eötvös and create unique hardcover books. During our events, István Ádám gave guitar concerts in the lobby, introducing our guests to the mysteries of music literature.

This year's events also included a presentation of the Perczel Globe. Dr. László Zentai, Vice-Rector for Education and Academic Affairs of Eötvös Loránd University, gave a lecture on the history of the globe.

The exhibition entitled „Fu magh kit az patikaba ugian sesamusnak hinak”, a collection of our books on medicine, was opened and can be visited by appointment on weekdays at
