Aranyponty Fishing Museum

We offer a number of opportunities to relax without a fishing rod in hand. Our guests can spend a little time in our Fishing Museum, in Rétimajor. It is the country’s only museum of fishery today. This private collection is significant because it collects and displays the tools, objects and photos of folk fishing, a tradition that has a very long history in our country. Traditional fishing, an ancient profession in Hungary and the lifestyle that it demands has vanished in the Western areas by today and is only present in traces here too. Traditional fishery is disappearing, as are its objects, terminology and the people doing it.

All this comes back to life in the museum that was opened in the year of the Millennium. The museum displays rarely used fishing tools and equipment on photos, and in frames. And the most important behind it all: the fisherman! "Our unknown peers are these, who live on the water.They may be keepers of big secrets, maybe that is why are they are reclusive. They are quiet and withdrawn. They don't sing folk songs" -wrote László Kunkovács renowned ethnographer in his famous photo-album, Kece, milling, marázsa. On the walls, his photos show how the different tools were used. He visited all the fishing families from Szigetköz to Berettyó in the 70’s and recorded the existing methods of catching fish. His artistically composed photos pay homage to a vanishing lifestyle in a unique way. For him these fishermen were saints; the patron saints of nature. "They walk our water like our forefathers did thousands of years ago." - he says - "Their life is the most beautiful example of living and interlocking with nature. They don't pollute or rob it, because they want to live by it in the future as well. Their tools and catching methods lead us to the distant past, to the ancient knowledge of mankind, that most of us has lost long ago."

Hungarian folk artists have always been inspired by the love and portrayal of fish and fishing. Ottó Szabó woodcarver carved the illustrations of Ottó Herman’s ‘Book of Hungarian Fishery’ on wood plates. The unique collection of fishing pottery is the artwork of Mrs Sándorné Banga, folk artist from Hódmezővásárhely. In the centre of the exhibition place, a separate album shows the rare and valuable botanic species and photos of wildlife and threatened birds in particular. In the open area next to the museum, there is also a 0.25 acre lake, where fishing shows can be held, and a copy of the mudhut dating back to the settlements of Magyars in Hungary can be found on the small peninsula. It shows how our ancestors lived. The visitor can feel like living in the centuries long past when seeing the ancient boat, the willow sinking in the water, the sparkling lake surface and the carps that lazily jump out of it.

 

To get into this ancient mindset that the museum brings back to life, here is László Kunkovács's great thought: "Overview of fisheries opens the gate to our ancient history. At that time we did not produce the food, we "only" collected, fished and gathered what we felt was our share from nature's dining table."

 

 

The Museum may be visited everyday between 10am and 6pm. We offer guided tours for groups or individuals for a fee (5000Ft).
