The centuries old building called “Papszer” is an exhibition site that has several exhibition spaces where the private collection of Zoltán Dömötör and a permanent exhibition about the history of photography may be visited. Collection of beautiful, elaborate cameras for almost 30 years has formed this very impressive and complex photography historic material. Another exhibition of the museum is the Endre Szász collection, “World of the artist 1969—1990”. 

The new urban history exhibition “A nobleman of Miskolc in national politics — Career and peers of Bertalan Szemere” was opened in the beginning of May 2013.
