“You must see,”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2012

You must see that little town call: Szentendre.
Szentendre is an attractive, picturesque old town is a treasure of the Danube Bend.
It is filled with romantic air and atmosphere. We walked all the way through the narrow alleys and passed by the old historical houses and churches day after day.
It is a town of the arts, and museums.
Margit Kovacs museum was one of our top experiences. She is a famous Hungarian artist, potter and sculptor.
It is an amazing, unique exhibition about her life and work. Once you step in you find yourself in a different world.We stayed for hours on end there, but wasn’t enough.
We would love to come back over again and again. We highly recommend.

“Unexpected Hilight of Hungary”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2012

We had no idea of what we would see when we entered this unadvertised museum. It was one of the best things we saw in Hungary. I am not really an art fan, but the incredibly expressive ceramic figures at The Margit Kovacs Museum were very unusual and very enjoyable. I wish I had been able to take some photos of the sculptures.
Szentendre is much better known for the marzipan museum, but The Kovacs Museum is much more interesting. Don't miss it.

“Thought provoking art”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2012

Margit Kovacs' ceramic creations is truly a treat. The tour we were given provided insight to Margit's thoughts, beliefs, and life which come through in her very interesting work. This was a wonderful surprise and I am SO glad we took the time to tour through this museum. I highly recommend.

“Ceramics like you have never seen”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2011

This little out of the way museum is just amazing. We loved the artistry of Margit Kovacs, her story, the work she did in her lifetime is amazing. It is not a place of tea cups and plates!

“Delightful surprise!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2011

I was unfamiliar with her prior to visiting this well designed museum. I am now definitely a fan and will seek out more of her work. Don't miss this jewel hidden down an alley.
