This week, anyone bringing a gift may enter the museum, according to a press release sent to the Budapest Business Journal. The gifts will be forwarded to the Világítótorony Foundation, an organization that helps socially handicapped, disabled and orphanage-housed children and supports the elderly living with illness.

The museum says that the value of the donations is entirely up to the visitors, and may range from new or used DVDs to pre-packed sweets. Incoming donations will be complemented with the museumʼs own contributions, the press release adds.

Arranged by the foundation, a group of handicapped children between 9 and 14 years of age are set to visit the museum next week, with all donations handed out to them directly.
