Petőfi Literary Museum

Museum

The Petőfi Literary Museum was established in 1954, as its predecessor, the Petőfi House was was struck by a bomb in 1945. After 1945, the management of the collection was handed over to the Budapest History Museum. From the 1950s, Petőfi House collected documents of Attila József and Endre Ady, besides those of Petőfi and Jókai, and as a consequence it outgrew its domain, requiring the establishment of an independent Museum of Literature. Since its establishment, the Museum of Literature has organised almost 500 exhibitions and issued more than 300 scholarly and popularising publications and exhibition catalogues. The three main activities of the Literary Museum are the organisation of expositions and events, and scientific collecting and processing.
