In the Tatabánya Museum, was introduced the archaeological monuments discovered in the area, as well as the new and recent monuments. We could have a view of their latest project from a bird’s eye view through  VR glasses which was the topic about garbage collection around the Turul monument. As mentioned, this was made for educational purposes in a playful way to make children aware of the importance of rubbish collection collection.

There are plenty of cultural tourism opportunities in Hungary  … be a guest – visitor at one of them.

Still at Tatabánya visited the Mining and Industria Skanzen with its member institution. This venue is also unique in every sense and most probably in an international context as well. We visited the entire building complexes of the Mine and saw the miners’six-door houses, where we could see age-old tools and equipment, the furnished offices, walking outdoor saw the smaller and giant machines and among them the tools and equipment which looked as an outer space land, and in the meantime went down to the old XV shaft.
