The Germans – with a population of almost quarter a million – are Hungary’s largest minority. Since 1972 the German Nationality Museum has been commissioned with the collection of their material and intellectual treasures nationwide. The first exhibition was opened in 1973 in the Miklós Mill. After becoming independent, the exhibition moved to the Nepomuk Mill in 1983. The former water mill was built in 1758 by the plans of Jakab Fellner and its name was given after the patron saint of millers and water transportation users St. John Nepomucene the wooden statue of whom decorates the façade of the building. The former mill structure, function and history is presented by an animated film in the exhibition. The nearly 500 m² exhibition hall of the museum is in the main building. The former granary is the artefacts storeroom. The collection is regularly used by Hungarian and foreign researchers and college or university students studying this topic in their thesis.

We and the Others – is the title of the museum’s permanent exhibition opened in 2015. The exhibition is not only about the Germans in Hungary. It is more about how stereotypes and prejudices about ethnic groups are developed, and the way national majority think of national minority. In the section Történetek (Stories) the thousand-year history of the relationship can be seen concerning the country’s attitude towards minority groups. The time of history is meandering through the boards figuratively and the lagging branches of the river, the dams and islands symbolize historical events. Opposite the history personal memorabilia can be found. The museum was given these objects by individuals or communities to portray the binding to the contemporary German minority. One section of the exhibition titled Tárgyak (Objects) shows what objects were considered typically German in the past. The exhibition encourages visitors to think about what we are like, and what the others are like.
