The idea of founding a museum in Szerencs was first considered in the 1960s. The collecting of material about the local history began in 1965, in which the study group of local history led by Angyal Béla had a very important function. On the 17th July 1967 dr. Petrikovits László dentist and notable art collector donated 400 tousand postcards, and many ex libris, books, archeological, ethnographical objects, and fine art to the town in a deed of gift.
