Summary of project results


During the implementation of the project, István Türr Museum of Baja town renovated and reconstructed the first level of its building at Deák Ferenc street no. 1 under the protection of National Historic Monuments, located in the very centre of the multi-national and multi-cultural settlement. The main purpose of the project was to ensure the preservation and sustainable usage of this built cultural heritage, also to promote social inclusion via enhancing access to new cultural and community services and to the cultural heritage kept in the museum functioning also as a regional cultural institute for minorities. The results involved the increasing of the exhibition area from 30% to 60%. During the implementation, the storage rooms were converted into museum workshops and spectacular open exhibition places on local history, arts, ethnography and textiles. Three information points with access to digitalized heritage were installed and almost 700 new artifacts could thus be exhibited. The total surface of the project area was 600 sqms. The project promoter cooperating with several local minority partners (Roma, Croatian, German and Serbian) has worked out 11 different museum programmes, teaching materials and launched regular events for the target group aged 3-23 years. The project entitled “Treasury of cultural heritage" can now exhibit close to 60% of the 79-year-old public collection kept in the museum instead of the previous 20%. The cultural heritage of Treasury Bácska can finally reach public interest for all interested visitors.
