Permanent Exhibition of the Museum of Chemistry

The exhibition place of the Museum of Chemistry in Várpalota gives an overview of the history of chemistry from alchemy to modern chemistry.

Place: Museum of Chemistry, Várpalota (Várpalota, Hunyadi utca 1. H-8100 )

At this exhibition we can get to know everything about the developmental periods of Hungarian chemistry and chemical industry.

We even see a realistically equipped Chemistry Laboratory as a part of the museum’s permanent exhibition. This show presents the tools of a laboratory: special equipment necessary in classical and instrumental analysis, and some excellences of analytical chemistry. The exhibition part entitled “Measuring and Computer Science in Chemical Industry” shows a compilation of tools and computer science instruments used in chemistry and chemical industry, while “Alchemy and Alchemists” makes a selection of equipment used in alchemy. The exhibition also takes upon itself to present ancient chemical technologies; it displays mock-ups of old-time power transmission equipment to the visitors.

The museum is open to visitors from April to October, however, we are happy to receive guests in any other part of the year, if appointments have been made preliminarily.
