Nagy Istvan gallery
The former Vojnich Mansion is a one-storey building built in classicist style around 1820. The former villa gave home to artist Gyula Rudnay’s  public academy and art school from 1947, and it has been functioning as a gallery since 1985. The building still has the blazon of the former owner, and the bronze bust of István Nagy, made by Ire Varga, can be seen in the small square in front of the building. The permanent exhibition presents artist István Nagy’s paintings.

Éber memorial house
Sándor Éber Sr., Sándor Éber Jr. and Anna Éber’s cherished and carefully preserved heritage can be seen in the Éber Memorial House in Jókai Street. Besides paintings, graphics and sculptures, the house holds valuable documents of local history and literature, objects of ethnographic interest and folk art items collected by the family for decades.
The Éber family has played a formative role in the 20th century fine arts of Baja. The house they lived in exhibits the middle-class lifestyle of the age and the work of the artist family at the same time. In the period interior we can get acquainted not only with the choice paintings by the artists of the family, but a little piece of old Bácska – at the meeting point of the Great Plain of Hungary and Transdanubia – which still keeps the wonders of a vanished world.

Bunjevac house
The folk culture of multi-cultural Bácska was enriched with a characteristic colour by the Bunjevac, who settled in the region at the end of the 17th century, spoke a Croatioan dialect and were Roman Catholics. The permanent exhibition ‘Around Baja’ of the ethnographic group of Baja’s Türr István Museum offers a taste of their material and cultural legacy, among other ethnic groups living or having lived here (the Sokac, Germans, the Székelys of Bukovina, Hungarians from northern Hungary, the southernmost Hungarian groups from Sárköz and Kalocsa) at the Bunjevac House, the regional museum of Southern Bács-Kiskun county. Besides, it also presents the material and housing culture of the Bunjevac within the frameworks of Baja Museum.  The building under 51 Pandúr Street is one of the last example of the traditional rustic architecture of the region. The pitched-roofed, thatched adobe house is said to have been built t the beginning of the 1860s. The characteristic dwelling of the county’s rural architecture belongs to the so-called central Hungarian type. Regarding the floor-plan, it has a room, a kitchen and another room, with an added larder and a stable.
