Sándor Kisfaludy was a polyglot, a friend of Beethoven, the Don Juan of his age, and a soldier who travelled the world and could draw and play the violin: he was a born Renaissance man who was only 29 years old when his bestseller, "The Loves of Himfy" brought him literary success. His wife was Róza Szegedy. As they had to children, the house had multiple owners after he passed away before his former chateau was converted into a memorial house in 1951. 

Here you can see his manuscripts and his personal belongings, like the mysterious Lavater Skull, which you can get to know through a 3D presentation. Legend has it that the eponymous doctor marked the places of various character traits and feelings on the skull with his own hands to prove his theory that has been disproved since then.

Various other exhibitions are also displayed here: the pictures of the Sass-Brunner painter family, the so-called Lilike Memorial Room, and the ceramics that were found during the excavations at the castle are all stored here, along with other memories of the town, and of local geology and church history. The famous bell collection of Sümeg is also on display here.

Tip: Rózsakő is also connected to Kisfaludy – by sitting there with his wife, he gave basis to he legend that it’s a place where eternal love is born.
