You might have heard about Joseph II’s royal physician, Doctor Zwack. But do you know what the origin of the first Hungarian neon signs is? And have you seen one of the country’s most famous posters? The history of the Zwack family gives answer for these kinds of interesting questions.

Our visitors can watch a film about the Zwack family’s and the Zwack company’s history as well which is approximately 20 minutes. The Zwack family’s fabulous reliques, – the more than 200-hundred-year old herb liqueur – the Unicum’s history and several extraordinary bottles can be found in the museum. Several curiosities such as an elaborating book in which the „fuel” ’s price – used at that time i. e. corn and rye for the carriage horses with which Unicum was carried to the pubs and restaurants-was written into, a special post card from the First World War, Ady Endre’s (famous Hungarian poet) poems to Mylitta, who was Peter Zwack’s aunt, a Swedish passport issued for Peter Zwack from Raoul Wallenberg. Visitor can have a look of some photos from the change of regime time reaching nowadays where the company’s latest success appears, a novelty in the world, the Unicum Plum. With the help of some photos visitors can get an insight of the launching moments of this delicious product and they can take a look behind the scenes as we show the Unicum Plum’s werk film.
