According to the former Fidesz politician, on the way to the picnic in Kötcs, he had to fight his way through some running fools at the entrance, but the atmosphere was very good inside.

It is certain that there will be smaller institutions that have to be temporarily closed for the heating season – stated the director general of the Hungarian National Museum on Hír TV’s Monday evening broadcast.

László L. Simon reminded that the museum has a total of forty buildings across the country. He does not consider the closure a tragedy in itself, as he believes that a system similar to Austria’s should be introduced in this regard. This means that in those places where the annual number of visitors does not reach five thousand – the National Museum also has such a member institution – and which practically has no visitors in the months of December and February, it would still be worthwhile to close, maintain, restore, a little to put things in order and to pay more attention to professional work – he explained. You can’t expect the state to compensate for everything, the situation is quite different now than when the Covid epidemic broke out, he added. As an example, he mentioned that in the case of the Ferenc Kubinyi Museum in Szécsény, they will be able to resolve without any problems the suspension of work there for a few months. He noted that this does not mean that scientific work cannot be done either at home or in our central building. After that, he reflected a little on the moral issues of energy conservation.

At the same time, this cannot be compared to a museum where artefacts are preserved, where the temperature cannot be changed from one moment to the next.

The director general also received a question about the meeting in Kotc. László Simon László said that the atmosphere was excellent, “those few protesters and those shouting about the dictatorship – who obviously wouldn’t be able to stand there if there was a dictatorship – can’t spoil people’s spirits, they can only cause momentary annoyance, but hey this seems to be part of Hungarian public life.”

Until you got to the entrance, you had to go through a few running fools, but inside there was a very good atmosphere, you could talk to a lot of valuable people about very interesting things

Speaking about the prime minister’s speech, he said that his presentation was broad and somewhat similar to the speech in Tusnádfürdő. “Specifically, there was relatively little talk about today’s Hungarian conditions, there was no guidance in this sense, rather he looked at the chances, which he also does in other forums, about what room for maneuver we have in the end with regard to the Russian-Ukrainian war, the reciprocity, the sanctions, or precisely in terms of V4 cooperation. For me, it was a particularly acceptable and valuable presentation,” he evaluated.
