MI AZ A MÚZEUMOK ÉJSZAKÁJA?

 

Múzeumok Éjszakája (Múzéj) egy kulturális program, ami 1999-ben indult francia példa alapján, és itthon 2003 óta rendezik meg minden évben. A program különlegessége, hogy egy belépőjegy megvásárlásával az összes részt vevő intézmény programját meg lehet tekinteni ezen az éjszakán. #MÚZÉJ2021

 

MIKOR VAN A MÚZEUMOK ÉJSZAKÁJA?

 

Az idei évben a Múzeumok Éjszakáját 2021. 06. 26-án tartják. A Múzéj hivatalosan 18:00-kor kezdődik, de egyes múzeumok – ahogy a Sziklakórház is – már reggel 10:00 órától várják a látogatókat. A 18 óra előtti programokon való részvétel általában korlátozott és valamilyen feltételhez (pl. nálunk vásárolt karszalag felmutatása) köthetik résztvevő intézmények. Az idei évben – az egészségvédelmi intézkedések betartása mellett – a tömeg elkerülése érdekében ahol csak lehet, javasolt előzetesen regisztrálni, helyet foglalni a programokra!

 

MILYEN FELTÉTELEKKEL VEHETSZ RÉSZT A MÚZÉJ PROGRAMOKON 2021-BEN?

 

A múzeumok a 194/2021 (IV. 26.) Kormányrendelet értelmében 18 éves kor felett csak azok számára látogathatók, akik rendelkeznek védettségi igazolvánnyal. Az igazolvány felmutatása vagy az applikáció bemutatása belépéskor kötelező, valamint személyi igazolvány felmutatását is kérhetik. A Sziklakórház Atombunker Múzeumban ezen kívül szájmaszk viselése is kötelező a programon való részvétel során.

Figyelem! 6 éves kor alatt a Sziklakórház Múzeumok Éjszakáján sem látogatható és 12 éves kor alatt nem ajánlott.

MÚZÉJ PROGRAMOK A SZIKLAKÓRHÁZBAN – 2021. 06. 26.

 

10:00 – 24:00 – HÉTKÖZNAPI HŐSÖK A SZIKLAKÓRHÁZBAN – tárlatvezetés

A program a Sziklakórház múltját azoknak a hétköznapi hősöknek a történetein keresztül mutatja be, akik tanúbizonyságot tettek elszántságukról és hősiességükről a huszadik század legnehezebb időszakaiban. Orvosok, ápolók, önkéntesek és civilek emlékei mesélnek ezen a napon az általuk képviselt örök érvényű értékekről és keltik életre a múzeum történetét.

Az interaktív tárlatvezetés hossza: 45-60 perc.

HOGYAN VEHETSZ RÉSZT A PROGRAMON?

Tárlatvezetések 15-30 percenként indulnak 10-24 óra között (utolsó belépés 23:00 órakor)

  • 10-18 ÓRA KÖZÖTT –  60 perces látogatás élő tárlatvezetéssel KIZÁRÓLAG  a Sziklakórházban vásárolt és pecséttel ellátott karszalaggal lehet részt venni. Időpontra szóló karszalag megvásárolható előzetesen online vagy a múzeumban, illetve a 2021. 06. 26-án a helyszínen 10:00 órától.  Figyelem! A helyszínen váltott karszalagok esetében időpont foglalásra nincs lehetőség, a programon érkezési sorrendben tudsz részt venni. A nálunk vásárolt karszalag természetesen az összes résztvevő múzeumban érvényes.)
  • 18-24 ÓRA KÖZÖTT – 45-60 perces látogatás BÁRHOL megváltott karszalaggal. Időpont foglalására máshol váltott karszalaggal nincs lehetőség, a programon érkezési sorrendben tudsz részt venni. Felhívjuk a figyelmedet, hogy a korlátozott kapacitás miatt csak annak tudjuk garantálni a bejutást és a sorban állás elkerülését, aki előzetesen a Sziklakórházban váltott időpontra szóló karszalagot.

10:00 – 22:00 – DARUMADARAK ÉS A JÓ ÁLDÁS – kreatív program

A Sziklakórház küldetése, hogy bemutassa a háború valódi arcát és rávilágítson a béke értékére. A béke egyik nemzetközi szimbóluma a papírból hajtogatott darumadár. A japán hagyomány szerint 1000 darumadár meghajtogatása szerencsét és jó áldást hoz, ezért a Múzeumok Éjszakája alkalmából minden látogatónkat megkérjük, hogy hajtogassa meg saját darumadarát akár otthon, akár a helyszínen és ezeket elhelyezzük a Sziklakórház kapuján.

A célunk, hogy az este folyamán 1000 darumadár kerüljön a múzeum kapujára, hogy ezzel együtt kívánjunk jó áldást minden hétköznapi hősnek!

 

ELŐVÉTELI ONLINE KARSZALAG VÁSÁRLÁS

 

Vedd meg Múzéj karszalagodat a Sziklakórházban személyesen vagy a Sziklakórház webshopjában előzetesen, így már 18 óra előtt részt vehetsz a programokon és ezzel támogatod munkánkat is! A nálunk elővételben vásárolt karszalagok időpontra szólnak, így elkerülöd a sorban állást is és bejutásod garantált. 

Karszalagot a helyszínen is vásárolhatsz 2021. 06. 26-án nálunk (ekkor már időpont foglalásra nem lesz lehetőség).

Our playful and free downloadable booklets are available for two age groups. Both publications help to process the messages conveyed by the Hospital in the Rock Museum and deepen the historical knowledge. Our museum educators call them as a 3 in 1 booklet because they help to tune in if you’re just planning a visit, and there are tasks in it that you’ll be able to solve while viewing the exhibit, and some that you can best solve at home.

Discover Hospital in the Rock! - under 12 years of age

This booklet is recommended for children who have no or limited knowledge of  World War II, the 1956 Revolution in Hungary, and the Cold War. The booklet will help you connect the museum experience to personal stories and provide the basics for processing what you see in the museum.

Discover Hospital in the Rock! - between 12 - 14 years of age

This booklet is for those who have already studied World War II, the 1956 Revolution in Hungary, and the Cold War. The booklet includes information that complements the school curriculum and helps deepen what is seen at the Hospital in the Rock Museum.

The booklets were produced with the support of the National Cultural Fund.

The use of radioactive materials are unavoidable in present times. Despite their harmful properties, there are multiple beneficial uses. The amount of energy produces by nuclear power plants would be unimaginable earlier, although the storage of used fuel is a highly debated topic even today.

Modern medicine uses radioactive materials in multiple diagnostic procedures, while research in natural science utilize them too. Radiocarbon dating used by archeology is based on the radioactive decay of certain elements. Furthermore there are several industrial applications of nuclear materials, for example sterilization or fire-alarms.

Christmas at the Hospital in the Rock

Christmas is always sad at the time of war – this was especially true during December 1944. The Soviet army had just encircled Budapest on Christmas Eve, this was when the siege of the capital started. Ágota Steinert, who was only four years old at the time, has the following memories from that day:

„We went to the basement, where everybody – according to their temper – prayed, cursed, was furious or stayed silent. Something baffling and unimaginable happened. Just as if an earthquake had started and the walls had wanted to collapse on us. The whole house was trembling, there was whooshing and weird noises, buzzing and booming.”

She and her family moved to the Hospital in the Rock on Christmas Day.
