Paloc people museum

Learn about the lives and traditions of the anomalous Hungarian tribe.

Paloc people museum The Other People

The origins of the Palóc are unclear, but it’s believed they descended from the Turkish Cuman tribe, who were displaced during the Mongol invasions. To this day, their descendants living in Slovakia and Hungary have retained their identity - complete with a distinctive dialect and accent. The permanent exhibition, ‘From Cradle to Grave’ outlines milestones in the lives of the Palóc people through artefacts and mock-ups of a birthing and wedding. Looking at the distinctive needlework, ranging from vibrant red-and-blue floral embroidery to nearly microscopic white-on-white.
