The prestigious German peasant house, suggesting creature comforts is the home of remembrance objects since June 2000 of the three largest ethnical groups, living in Bátaszék. 

The population of our city consists mainly of Germans, resettled here in the XVIIIth century, of Hungarians, resettled here from Upper Hungary (today Slovakia) after the Second World War and Hungarians of Transylvania, fled from Bukovina. Their furniture, articles, clothes, pieces of needlework are preserved and on display in this collection.



In the first part of the exhibition-expansion there had been created a school-history exposure in one premise of the sidelong building, and a collection of preserved tools (blue-painter, photographer, pastry-cook) of old-time local professions in the other one. At the same time in the stable and in the backyard agricultural machines and equipments are on display. May 2005 in the cellar of the building a rich archeological exhibition is taking place, made from the finding of the Cistercian abbey, operating sometime in our city.




The wooden-clock, made in 1943 by Székely Albert, handyman from Józseffalva, had been placed in the Szekely room during the closing celebration series of the millennium. The craftsman got the hang of the structure of clocks by retouching old clocks among being a carpenter. After that he had the opportunity to realize his dream, to create a 2 meters high "parlor-clock". The contemporary Newsreel had reported about the clock, brought out on the sale of Szabadka. The clock is one of the favorite items of the visitors of the Peasant House, it enjoys large popularity because of its destiny and its artistic value as well.
