The aim of the exhibition is to present one of our cultural identity’s characteristic folkloric values, the folktale, in an experience-centered manner.

The exhibition reflects the world of the storyteller (seasonal agricultural workers in the 19th and 20th centuries) and shows that the tale is a living tradition and a communal experience that everyone needs. Not only through showcases, but also by talking, playing and telling stories together at each station!

The unique treasure of our intellectual folk tradition is the collection of folktales collected by Dr. Katalin Petánovics from a poor storyteller woman from Vállus in the 1970s, which forms the basis of the exhibition. The Balaton Museum staff have tried to process the corpus of texts so that the folk memory is brought to life by the creators who celebrate the Keszthely and surrounding traditions, thus expressing the value of living folk art and the importance of passing it on.
