18 Jun. 2019.
“The Hungarian nation repays one of its debts: “Puskás Exhibition Centre to open in new Puskás Aréna”. This was the title of the announcement made by the Public Foundation for the Research of Central European History and Society.
The Puskás Exhibition Centre will present a memory deserving of the career of one of the best-known Hungarian sportsmen, Ferenc Puskás, who won 85 caps for Hungary and four for Spain, and was an Olympic champion, World Cup runner-up, three-time European Cup winner, the Sportsman of the Nation, and the captain of the great Hungarian national team of the 1950s.
According to the announcement made by the foundation, the exhibition will present the life of Ferenc Puskás, one of football’s world greats, and alongside his sporting successes will include the history of the Hungarian Aranycsapat (Golden Team) as well as that of the age in which these exceptional footballers became one of the most successful teams of all time.
“We are confident that the Puskás Exhibition Centre will present a fitting memory for one of the greatest footballers of all time. It is a long-standing wish of Hungarians that a museum dedicated to Puskás be established.
The staff at the Public Foundation for the Research of Central European History and Society have already proved on countless occasions that they can create world-class exhibitions. The House of Terror Museum – which has been one of the five most visited museums in the country every year since opening in 2002 – has a permanent exhibition and has had dozens of temporary ones, then there is the latest immensely popular exhibition in the Várkert Bazár, A New World Was Born, which has seen foundation staff praised for providing visitors with a modern, exciting and interactive experience.
This creative team also created the first permanent holocaust exhibition in Hungary outside of Budapest, as well as the Emlékpont, an exhibition of the post-1945 history of Hódmezővásárhely, which has received nationwide acclaim.” the foundation's announcement stated.
