Technical Study Stores

The Technical Study Stores can be considered as a museum, yet it does not incorporate a permanent exhibiting place.The artifacts are presented on metal shelves in three spacious halls – eighteen-thousand pieces altogether. The collection contains world patents, first copies and enormous power-machines. Technical miracles, everyday achievements, household and electric devices of the last centuries can be seen in a huge amount and density. Telescopes, cameras, computing and electric devices, the outstanding inventions of optics, precision mechanics and geodesy are exhibited on the shelves. Ányos Jedlik’s special dynamo (a dynamo powered by electricity) and József Petzvál’s objective system are preserved besides such unique objects as the Remington N 1 typewriter, which is the world’s first typewriter produced in a factory.
