3)    Hungarian National Museum (HU)

The Hungarian National Museum traces its foundation to 1802 when Count Ferenc Széchényi set up the National Széchényi Library. This would then be followed a year later by the donating of a mineral collection by Széchényi's wife. This led to the creation of the Hungarian National Museum as a general and natural history museum, and not only a library. In 1807, the Hungarian National Parliament passed legislation on the new institution and asked the nation to help donate to the museum. Later in 1846, the museum moved to its current location of VIII. Múzeum krt. 14–16. Here the museum resides in a neo-classical style building designed by Mihály Pollack.

4)    National Museum of Slovenia (SI)

The National Museum of Slovenia, which was founded by the Carniolan State Parliament on the 15th of October 1821, is the oldest of all Slovenian museum institutions. Its six departments collect, document, preserve, and investigate the movable cultural heritage of Slovenia and present it to the public. Thanks to the exceptional educational level of its staff members, the museum also has the status of a research institution, and is involved in several scientific research projects focused on a more detailed study of the Slovenian cultural heritage. The quality of the museum activities in the central national museum depends on the staff and its consultants, with their excellent professional command of their fields and specific areas of specialization. Only through such an approach is it possible to present the cultural heritage of Slovenia to the public in a modern, attractive, and popular manner.

5)    Dolenjski Museum Novo mesto (SI)

The first idea of a museum that would collect material on the history of Novo mesto and Dolenjska was born in 1865, when the town celebrated its 500th anniversary. After several years of efforts by the Museum Society (founded in 1941) – an association of Dolenjska intellectuals, who started to systematically collect museum material – the long-awaited museum was finally founded in 1950, exactly 85 years after the first initiative. On 1 June 1950, the museum was handed over to the District People’s Committee Novo mesto by a decision of the People’s Committee of the Ljubljana government. Since then, that day has been considered the birthday of the Museum of Dolenjska. Every year, it is publicly celebrated with an Open Doors Day featuring diverse activities all day long, and – since 1996 – with the traditional exhibition From the depots of the Museum of Dolenjska.
