Collection of Agricultural Technology Heritage

Cultural offers

8420 Zirc, Szabadság u. 10.

The Collection features unique, European and Hungarian museum pieces of agricultural machinery and tools used from the 19th century.

The collection was established in the school year 1974/1975. Since then, its processing is ongoing, as the machines, work tools and other objects require continuous restoration and maintenance , which is performed by students and skilled workers under the leadership of vocational teachers.

The collection includes several machines unique in Hungary; they are not found elsewhere:

  • HSCS D model steam traction engine, year 1912
  • Fried automotive charcoal engine-generator, year 1918
  • Seed threshing machine HS-Wien, year 1896
