The former Hotel Amazon, the recent Amazon House Visitor Centre houses the exhibition of Aristocratic travels, travel adventures that displays the historic course and travel costumes as well as the travel culture of the 19th and beginning of the 20th centuries.

The show begins with evocation of travel preparations and draws attention to dangers of contemporary travels. The exhibition gives information on means of transportation, too: the way of continental transportation before railways as well as that of rail, water and air transport and travel. Visitors are introduced to the pleasure of motor drive in the last rooms. A number of interactive tools complete the experience.

Experience farm

Experiences in the Manor

Behind the museum there is a1,2 hectarearea where an experience farm was developed. We can get impressions about former farming; we can see old grape and fruit species as well as plants of field and garden. Aromatic herbs can be observed, too. In the barton we can see indigenous live stocks; there are sheepcote, stable, fowl-yards and pigeonhole. It is possible to feed and strike the animals or prepare their forage. Honey house, coach house, basket making and drying place as well a glasshouse were also built up. To have an idea what the peasant children with, there is a ground with playing barn, plant labyrinth, small carts and barrows. It can give a pleasure time to children and adults as well. If we are tired we can have a break in a nice resting place.

To the offer of the experience farm belong several unique programs and events that try to keep preserve our heritage.

With West-Balaton Card the experience farm can visited for free!

Toys are indispensible in all period of life and in the process of becoming a human being. Toys can be divided into different TYPES and GROUPS but after all we can set up FOUR main categories: toys in connection with tools, motion, choosing a partner and mental or intellectual ones. Our traditions, for example: folk games will not become old-fashioned and children can play them at any period and under any circumstances because their function on the one hand is to entertain children and on the other hand children will become skilful, clever and have fun. The function of playing is very versatile. The Toy Museum with its objects does not intend to bring back a dusty, old-fashioned world but we would like to rescue those elements, which meet general demands, what we still need nowadays, namely: the experience of having fun together. My passion is to collect the interesting and valuable pieces of our past and this hobby has been completed by being able to exhibit them, so this way our past and history can arouse nostalgia.
