Hussar collection of the Ferenc Nádasdy Museum
The Hussar collection of the Ferenc Nádasdy Museum and the permanent exhibition based on it is one of the museum units showing these Hungarian armed forces in an internationally known and recognised unique way in Europe.
Some of the objects of the 11th Huszár regiment of Szombathely, the royal Radetzky Huszár along with the Hungarian Royal 3rd Ferenc Nádasdy Huszár regiment, one of the earliest regiments, came to the Ferenc Nádasdy Museum 1983.
1984 the memorabilia of the Hungarian Royal András Hadik 4th huszár regiment were donated to the museum. Following that our collection was enriched by remarkable sports memorabilia, like the awards, trophies and cups of horse-back athletes, Ottmár Schaurek, József Platthy and László Selmeczy, from the era between the two World Wars.
The collection includes objects of industrial and fine art, as well as more than fifty sabres, medals, book materials, documents and silver cigarette etuis.
Following the subsidy of the Hungarian National Cultural Core Program we again launch the online database, based on previous activities, presenting the entire Hussar collection of the Museum.
