It's not in the city center, but overall it's interesting. The Mausoleum is a bit stange for me. The Manufacture is really nice and interesting.

It is an excellent museum. People could see the products of the Great Hungarian Zsolnay. It is a great place.

Stunning porcelain and other artworks in the museums but the whole complex is worth seeing - allow at least a half day - we could have spent a whole day there. It's the best thing in Pecs and that's saying something

I was looking forward to going to this museum and it did not disappoint. The different types of works that the family did are displayed beautifully and in a way that makes sense artistically and chronologically. The rooms are light and airy, do not rush through this museum.

Though it's a bit far from the centre on foot, Zsolnay Museum is a well organized, beautiful and interesting place to visit. It is a must if you are in Pécs!

Lovely museum honouring the Zsolnay family and their contributions to the Pecs community. Not just plates and vases - it's worth it!

I love ceramics and thoroughly enjoyed reading about the history of the Zsolnay's family beginning their ceramic business. The collections in the museum are well presented with English translations for each piece. Nice photo history with English translations regarding the family. This museum also shows the decorating trends that came and went (art deco & Egyptian for example) Recommend.

A must for fans of decorative ceramic art objects! Best to visit during early morning or during weekends when the museum closes late at 19:00

Prior to visiting we weren't familiar with these beautiful porcelains. We are so glad we visited! Beautiful collection of examples of the items designed and produced by the Zsolnay factory! Walking around Pecs after visiting the museum you'll see his influence and works everywhere. Don't miss this gem of a museum during your stay in town.

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
