Permanent exhibition

 

The permanent exhibition of the Palace comprises 31 rooms. In the beautifully restored rooms, visitors can learn about the complete history of the palace, from the family of the builder Grassalkovich to the royal summer residence to our own times.

The Grassalkovich family era
Filling six rooms, this is an exhibition of the first century of the Palace and the first three generations of the Grassalkovich family, with insight into the Baroque church. The wall paintings dating from this period have been restored or reconstructed.

The Royal Suites
The second golden age of the building began in 1867. Bought and reconstructed by the Hungarian state, the palace was presented as a coronation gift to Emperor Francis Joseph I (1830–1916) and Queen Elizabeth (1837–1898) for use as a residence. The royal period is evoked in 13 rooms: the faithfully restored royal suites and the ceremonial hall.

The Queen Elizabeth Memorial Exhibition
The exhibition presents the memorabilia of the cult of the beloved Queen of Hungarians, which was established in her lifetime and is still alive today, in the former reading room and in the suite of Ida Ferenczy, (the Hungarian reader of the Queen.)
Centuries, inhabitants, stories
The history of the palace from the end of the royal period to World War I.
Habsburg Gallery
The upstairs corridor of the „Gizella wing” is decorated with a gallery of pictures of the Habsburg family, from Maria Theresa to Queen Elisabeth.
The secret life of the castle (1950-1990)
After World War II, the palace was used as a retirement home and a Soviet barracks. Our new exhibition recalls these decades. This three rooms on the ground floor are open to the public free of charge.

25 years-Anniversary of the renewed Palace

25 years - Anniversary of the renewed Palace

The Royal Castle of Gödöllő has many services, should mostly convey a sense of life. This is true for exhibitions, it is true for concerts, it is true for programs, but it is also true for a wedding or conference. We would like to make sure that all visitors, regardless of why they came to the Gödöllő castle or its nature-protected park, leave here, so that they certainly tasted the royal feeling of life here, absorbed the Hungarian culture and art. From arrival to departure, every element of the visit that the guest experienced here, be it the washroom, the cloakroom, the exhibition, the concert or a kind word from the people who worked here, was worthy of the Royal Castle. As in all of our lives, so, of course, in the life of the castle, there have been difficult and beautiful, memorable periods in the last 25 years. It is not my intention to summarize the outstanding events in the history of the quarter century now, as there will be appropriate forums for this throughout the year. I would like to highlight just two issues: in 2019, our exhibitions were viewed by 243,000, making us the most visited castle museum in the country, in addition to which we organized more than 300 events. I wish you all the best in 2021! Let's take care of each other! dr. Tamás Ujváry Executive Director

The queen's furniture has returned home!

The queen's furniture has returned home! Queen Elizabeth's personal furniture, dressing table and glass showcase arrived at the Royal Castle in Gödöllő   Dr. Tamás Ujváry, the managing director of the Royal Palace of Gödöllő Public Benefit Nonprofit Ltd., reminded that the castle operates as a real Sisi cult place. The building also celebrates its anniversary, as it was abandoned by the Soviet army thirty years ago and then opened in 1996, albeit only in part, to visitors in 1996. The anniversary is also connected with the arrival of the two special pieces of furniture, which were successfully repurchased with the help of the National Castle Program and the NÖF, said Dr. Tamás Ujváry. Speaking about the National Castle Program and the National Castle Program, which he supervised as a ministerial commissioner, Zsolt Virág said that they are aimed not only at the restoration of the buildings, but also at their mental rehabilitation. This includes returning any former furnishings to the walls, he noted. According to him, Queen Elizabeth's former dressing table and glazed display case appeared at an auction in Germany, where they were bought back at a starting price, and from Friday the public can meet the artefacts in the castle's permanent exhibition in the queen's dressing room.
