The most important element of the Hungarian Museum of Science, Technology and Transport's mission is the collection and presentation of the artifacts of transport history for the public.
The commemoration of the 70 year old Passenger Catering Company which has provided cultured conditions for long travels fits into this picture.
This establishment was tasked to provide gastronomic experiences for the passengers on railway and waterways and their stations and also to make sleeping cars comfortable for the guests that stayed in them.
The history if the company will be showcased in an exhibition on the Kossuth Museum Ship. For the Day of Transport Culture we will organize several extra guided tours of this exhibition on the 10th of May from 10 am to 4 pm where the historians of this company will talk about the colourful past of comfortable travels.
