This lovely cottage that takes us back to the past can be found in one of the tiny streets of Markaz.

The Village Museum of Markaz was built by Vendel Valkó, a local master at the beginning of the 1870’s. The house is not the typical one divided into three parts.

The village museum was built from roughly carved rocks on adobe and its roof is made of reed (formerly thatched). The floor was made from the mixture of manure and adobe covered by a thin layer of manure and the red soil of Markaz. Te walls are whitewashed and the windows have blue frames at the front. In the dwelling parts originally there was a kitchen and a room with a fireplace. The farm buildings containing a pantry and a huge storage place for gardening tools are in parallel with the house.

A great part of the objects that serve as fittings and equipment dates back to the beginning of the 20th century. A human-size doll can be used to study the traditional clothes of a young couple of that age while the folk art dolls and children’s toys of Mrs Mária Keszthelyi are on display at the top of a chest of drawers.  A cradle, beds, spinning wheel, loom, kitchen equipment and the typical objects of the past can all be found in the house.
