The inaugural general meeting of the Pulszky Society – Hungarian Museum Association was held on December 5, 1990, in the lecture hall of the Hungarian Museum of Natural History, and it was registered by the order of the Budapest-Capital Regional Court April 16, 1991. This professional non-governmental organization was established shortly after the political change of the regime and nowadays plays a decisive role in the Hungarian museum world with a membership of about 900 people. 

The Pulszky Society – Hungarian Museum Association is a professional organization related to the field of the museums and the discipline of the museum studies and connected areas. This Society has been an active flagship for the past three decades for the many areas of the museum management in diverse and various ways and it is committed to aiding the museum world in the everchanging circumstances. Its board, presidency, sections and more than 900 members represent a wide variety of areas of museum affairs and different fields. 

On the 30th anniversary of the establishment of the Pulszky Society – Hungarian Museum Association, the presidency and the board formulated and prepared several programs and activities (events, publications) for the years 2020 and 2021.

The implementation of our events and activities are now disturbed by the current epidemic situation. During the pandemic and in the coming weeks, we will look back on the Pulszky Society’s past thirty years and we are going to share on different platforms (social networking services, websites) the highlights and most important past events that happened in the life of the Society. Our goal with the anniversary is to provide an opportunity to learn about our common past, to define and reinforce our values, but also to shape our future plans.
