Recski tájház

The Village Museum of Folk Art can be visited at 118 Kossuth út that has been functioning since 1965 and consists of the kitchen and the hall. In 1997 the ministry concerned included the house in the list of monuments. It is one of the oldest village museums not only of the region but also of the country in Recsk.

In addition to the objects of traditional rural life the large curved shaped earthenware fireplace has a special mood. The Village Museum of Recsk can be visited throughout the year and the special edition of the series Tájak Korok Múzeumok (Regions, Eras, Museums) helps orientation.

It was built in 1910 in accordance with the constructing habits of the village but paying a special attention to the enormous plot size as it was the biggest one in Recsk. The dwelling house was built on the left side of the plot and the other farm buildings (pig pen, stable, grain storage place) were constructed behind the house. The walls are made from rock and the roof is tiled. There are blinders and cills in the windows. There are six axes in the facade with the holes of the originally three dwelling rooms and the grain storage place. It also has a terrace with wooden columns and a railing placed high up at the entrance. The house has almost preserved its original form so the exterior was not modified to a great extent. The facade looking onto the street may have been more decorated formerly. The wooden columns of the terrace were carved by Ignác Virág Bódi.

The village museum is operated by the Homecraft Cooperative of Heves.
