The display offers various pieces of porcelain which are very beautiful. I had read reviews that said there was no photography, but this dis not apply to us on our visit. The Museum also displays the history of the Zsolnay family which I found interesting especially the takeover by the Communists and then back to be in private hands again.... More

This museum houses a beautiful display of porcelain vases, figurines, statues, dishes, etc. No photography is allowed. I wish there had been more information provided regarding the history and process of making the porcelain. I agree with other reviewers - it did not seem to be air-conditioned and was quit warm the August day we visited.

This became a very interesting half hour on our wondering of Pecs on a very hot Sunday Pecs afternoon (34.5oC in the shade) Zsolnay was most certainly a very talented fellow. The works are well displayed and we were guided by a hostess from area to area. On such a hot day, little ventilation came through the few one windows,... More

And of course, there is a center of world-famous „ Zsolnay ceramics'' And a powerful... More

I really enjoyed seeing these works and learning about the company and people who created them. Having already spent some time in Budapest (and planning even more), it helps me appreciate and understand its architecture and the detailed, decorative aspects which add so much to it. Works include fountains, vases, tableware, etc. and different stylistic influences such as ancient Greece,... More

Now that I have been to the Zsolnay Museum, my eyes are attuned to noticing their work whenever I might encounter it. You see it, of course, in Pecs - the fountain with its sheep heads is just delightful. And then in Budapest the roof of St. Matthias' Church is Zsolnay tile, and there are other buildings that are decorated... More

Visited with teenage daughter June 2012. Nice little museum with good displays of just about every way you could use porcelain and many types of decoration. Some very beautiful pieces on display. The museum also explained a bit about the family history of the company and some of the procedures they developed that made their product so sought after. We... More
