Open days at the Eötvös Exhibition

Visitors are welcome without registration on the 14th of May 2022 from 10 am to 6 pm at the exhibition of the ELTE University Library and Archives.

The museum laboratory set up in the exhibition space provides an opportunity to get to know Loránd Eötvös from a new perspective with the help of modern digital devices. The turn of the century was not only a period of great inventions, which Eötvös joined with his research, but also of continuous change. In his stereo photographs, he captured his daughters, who climbed 4000 meters high mountains, the Mediterranean countryside he saw on his holidays, and the now vanished streets of Budapest as well as its newly built boulevards. Virtual reality glasses in the exhibition allow all this to happen right under your nose, while in augmented reality, Eötvös' character accompanies visitors through important places in his life.

Please, contact our colleagues to arrange an appointment at
