Creating the Rhédey Museum in Sângeorgiu de Pădure

Csibi Attila Zoltán, the mayor of Sângeorgiu de Pădure, has signed a financing contract, which will lead to the creation of the Rhédey Museum in the Rhédey castle in Sângeorgiu de Pădure in the next two years. The museum will consist of five thematic rooms.
The Rhédey castle is often visited by tourists. The current exhibitions attract many people. The ethnographic room, the room of the building models and the memorial room of the flooded village are known by many. Recently, a new idea appeared, that the castle is a proper place for presenting the history of the Rhédey family. The local administration considered that a museum is the most suitable to fulfill this goal. To implement this project, a reputable ethnograph, dr. Kinda István has offered his services, which consists of planning and arranging the museum. The purpose of the museum is multiple: first of all, to present the history of the Rhédey family, the most important personalities, emphasizing the connection with Sângeorgiu de Pădure and the British Royal Family. Then, the history of the castle will be presented, the different stages of the construction, while outlining Claudia’s personality traits. The rooms can be visited modularly.
The most difficult part will be the acquisition of the furniture and contemporary objects. Dr. Kinda István thinks that the collection can be made by direct purchases and research, but long term loans can be a temporary solution. The exhibition has the support the County Museum from Mureș, by giving up the objects and the information they have. This means that they will loan prin predarea obiectelor și informațiilor pe care le dețin. Aceasta înseamnă că vor împrumuta archaeological artifacts Sângeorgiu de Pădure, which prove the existence of man in this region from a very old age.
Besides the objects, there will be modern visual elements, which will outline the image of the family and that era. It will not be a regular exhibition, but one where the experience will be made by the dominancy of objects and visual elements.
The rooms are going to have a theme. One room will present the history of the Rhédey family (centuries 14-21), the second room will be the Rhédey Claudia room (first half of the 19th century), the third one will present the atmosphere of the former ballroom (first half of the 19th century), the fourth will be the Rhédey László / Alexander von Württemberg room, and the fifth room will present the history of the castle and of the crypt (centuries 17-20), using photos, graphics and information pannels.
