Unfortunately, we were not allowed in because the staff is not properly informed on covid measures
Jun 2021 • Couples
Unfortunately, we were not allowed to enter the museum, even though we had proof of vaccination. We tried explaining the staff that we do not possess a vaccination card, but we do have a bilingual vaccination certificate on paper, because this is what Serbia provides to vaccinated residents. Noone was willing to listen and reason with us and kept repeating that we needed a vaccination card. The staff needs to be better informed on this, because Serbia and Hungary have an agreement according to which a proof of vaccination (any proof) enables tourists to 1.visit Hungary 2.visit closed spaces like museums, theaters, cafes and so on.
It's too bad we were caught on such a technicality, because a vaccination card is not what protects from covid, but a vaccine is.

Many Beautiful Ceramics under One Roof
Nov 2018 • Couples
This museum is the history of the ceramics factory in Pecs. This factory made the roof tiles for St. Mattias Church in Budapest. There are many pieces of art that are worth a look. This museum does not take long to go through.

World Class Ceramics Museum

Notice the amazing display of ceramic arts over the past century, and the different styles over the years in an old factory area.

Worth The Train Trip From Budapest
Sep 2018 • Solo
I was interested in seeing the pottery and the evolution of their growth. It is like a mini little village, with lots to do. I didn't take any of the tours but I went to many of the exhibits. Just being outside you can see many of the tiles and artistry. Personally, I liked their rose period best, which was what they started with. The history is interesting the grounds are nice to walk around and good exhibits to see. The pottery itself is on the pricey side!

This museum gives you an overview of the history of the manufacturer dynasty and it's extra ordinary accomplishments. Don't miss the familie's mausoleum across from he factory.

Great surprise
Jun 2018 • Family
I did not expect to enjoy this museum as much as I did. I found it interesting reading the history of the family and how the company ended with Communism. The porcelain products that the company produced were interesting.
Wonder through the small gift shop. They have great jewelry for sale and everyone who saw it wishes that they had purchased some.

Zsolnay Museum highlights some of the works of ceramics made by the namesake company. While we didn’t care too much about the history of Zsolnay, the works on display and its diverse themes were worth a look despite a slightly steep admission.

Interesting look at a Pecs tradition
Jun 2018 • Couples
The museum provides a good explanation of the Zsolnay family history and the development of the factory including the products the family invented which at one time made it the largest company in Hungary up to its nationalisation by the Soviets after the end of the last war. The real attraction is the amazing porcelain on display including some products which never made it to the market. Spent an interesting 90 minutes there.

Gorgeous Ceramic and Tile Works
May 2018 • Solo
I had read up on the Zsolnay family prior to visiting Pecs--and have seen numerous examples of the tile work all over Budapest--but the items on display in the mid-sized museum are just spectacular, along with a history of the family and company. I didn't venture out to the Zsolnay Cultural Center so this museum more than satisfied my need to see a good variety of their works.
