The Ethnographic Department of the Janus Pannonius Museum opened its new permanent exhibition in 1996. The exhibition provides an overview of the traditional cultures of the peoples of Baranya from the beginning of the 20th century until the 1950s. Our county has a unique place in the South of Hungary with its diverse ethnic composition and its ethnographic values. The woodworks, the colourful costumes, potteries, embroideries and various pieces of furniture of the peoples of the multinational Baranya are on display here. Apart from this the exhibition introduces folk traditions: the "Busó" march of Mohács, the girl market of Pécsvárad, religious folk artefacts, traditional settlements and remains of folk architecture.
With the aid of photos, pieces of furniture and tools, the first room provides information on the various folk groups and their building techniques. The content of the second room is dealing with the traditional textiles of Baranya, the characteristic variations of folk-weave and embroidery as well as the traditional folk costumes of certain folk groups. The third room introduces the products of potters and stove builders. The fourth room is dedicated to the accessories of the most well known Baranyan folk tradition, the "Busó March".
