The Museum of Transport is commemorating the handover of Liszt Ferenc International Airport in Budapest, formerly known as Budapest Ferihegy International Airport, over 70 years ago with a virtual exhibit on the beginnings of Hungarian aviation.
Visitors can learn about the development of the airport through original visuals, photos, objects and news excerpts related to the initial investment and the airport’s operation through the years.
People can learn about Hungary’s first airports and then watch a presentation on the construction of Ferihegy in detail. The exhibition also talks about the further development of the international airport, with photos of both the past and present state of the area.
The Museum of Transport, in cooperation with the Hungarian Museum of Architecture and the Monument Protection Documentation Center, FŐMTERV and Lajos Tomory Museum, compiled a special collection of photos and documents that have never been shown to visitors in this way before.
The Museum of Transport has featured online exhibitions on its website for more than a year; this is the fourth such exhibit, with photos and history accessible from anywhere in the world on the museum’s website.
