Ady Endre Museum  



The Ady Endre Memorial Museum is housed in the building of the former "Müller" Café, a heritage building where the intellectual class of Oradea used to meet at the beginning of the 20th century.

This chic place with a charming terrace was one of the favourite places of young poet Ady Endre, him finding here a proper space in which he was inspired to create. Inside you can see volumes of the writer's work (complete editions of poetic, journalistic and prose works), published during the poet's life and post-mortem.


Princeps editions at the Ady Endre Museum


The great value of this collection is given by princeps editions, some of them signed by the author, numerous documents (prints attesting interest and gratitude for the personality of Ady Endre), embodied through cultural and literary manifestations, as well and several manuscripts of Ady Endre (letters and postcards addressed to personalities close to the poet, articles and signed poems, other manuscripts from the members of "a Halnap " literary society and close friends of the poet, family correspondence with several researchers of his work).


To these remarkable collectables, there are added numerous literary magazines, published throughout the century (the collection of the magazine "Nyugat" ("West"), which existed between 1908 and 1937 and is considered the most important Hungarian literary magazine of the last century). Ady Endre's contribution to its establishment and development is highly notable, as he was first a contributor and later an editor of the magazine, more specifically. He shall fulfil this purpose until his death in 1919.


The collection of photographs exhibited inside the museum consists of photographs of the poet from different periods of his life, of members of the Ady family, of some editorial colleagues or friends of the poet.


Note that among the heritage of Ady Endre Museum there is also an impressive collection of old photographs, especially from the second half of the nineteenth century and the early twentieth century.
