The outdoor ethnographical collection includes the windmill of Szentes, which was built by a farmer in 1866-67.
The Piti Windmill of Szentes: The mill built in the 1870s worked from the ’30s without a sail-arm, was run by a petrol engine and worked as a grinder. Its two pairs of stones were run by an 8 horse-power Hungarian National Astra engine, which is still exhibited in the engine-house near the building. The mill was degraded in the ’80s: from an industrial monument it was turned into a garden decoration.

Trip to Csongrád

48 km

The Fishermen House of Csongrád: until the last few decades fishery played a great role in the lives of the inhabitants of Csongrád. Fishermen lived in the so called „inner town” on the riverbank, where Tisza-boatmen, shipbuilders and diggers used to live. They had no land or owned a small vineyard or allotment, that is why their old houses made of soil endured till the 1950s. In the 1960s the National Memorial Inspectorate preserved 17 traditional houses in Csongrád’s inner town. They could not be moved, so ethnographers chose another inner town house to take into the outdoor collection of the memorial park.
The adobe house with its wooden chimney is a good example of the typical room-kitchen-patio design houses of the 19th century fishermen and diggers. The furniture of the room is characteristic of the 1910s. In the patio you can see typical fishing tools: a fish-basket, nets and other objects.
