The Zichy mansion, a 18th century Baroque building, houses the collection of historic documents and objects, which follow the history of Óbuda and the district from Roman times to the twentieth century. The forerunner of the museum, the first on settlement history in Budapest, was founded in a local boy school in Kiskorona street 10, in 1927, and bore the name "Árpád Museum of Óbuda". Its contents were destroyed in 1945; the present museum only bears its mentality. The museum, as we now know it, came alive in 1996, when it became an independent institution. The collection displays about a thousand objects: pottery, textiles, carvings, and furniture.
