Abstract: The opening of the Széchenyi Zsigmond Hunting Museum in the baroque Grassalkovich Mansion in Hatvan, Hungary was the realisation of a 100-year-old dream. Th e Hungarian hunting and fishing culture and traditions are shown through nine exhibitions on three floors: game species of the Carpathian Basin, clothing, music, art pieces etc. related to or inspired by hunting. The museum uniquely combines traditional elements like display cabinets with interactive computers, which allow the visitor a playful learning experience and thorough understanding of the role of hunting in our modern, mostly urbanised society. In the park of the castle, in two modern buildings, the so-called ‘Adventure Place’ provides the chance for everyone to try shooting with laser guns and bowhunting, which gives an insight into the practices of modern hunting. With 9 figures.
