Just one of the many museums in the so-called museum street would be underestimation for this museum. This is the place where you will live your own fairy-tale among all the porcelain and glass objects made by Zsolnay family manufacture. Plan to spend at least an hour or more navigating through this magnificent museum. Note: No-English speaking staff, Student reduced... More

A lot of exhibitions, that can be visited separately, depending on your interest. A great park with a lot of structures, nice area to take a long walk or just to relay.

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.

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
