Lonely Planet review for Ferenc Móra Museum
Oskola utca, one of the city's oldest streets, leads from Dóm tér to Roosevelt tér and the Palace of Education (1896) at No 1-3, which now houses the Ferenc Móra Museum. The museum's strength lies in its colourful collection of folk art from Csongrád County, bearing intelligent descriptions in several languages.
The unique exhibit of 7th-century Avar finds of delicate gold work and other art pieces showcases the sophistication and art appreciation of these often forgotten people while another room is given over to an even more obscure group, the Sarmatians. Originating in present-day Iran, these people moved to the plain as allies of the Romans; construction of the new M5 motorway has unearthed a 1st-century village, along with pottery, jewellery and graves.
