Museum, and especially it's garden is very nice. Lady at the cash desk was very pleasant and nice to us. But, from the moment when we entered museum exhibition to the moment we exited, museum stuff was following us, like we're some kind of criminals. But the museum and its exhibition was very nice.

Recently renovated with EU funding. There were only 3 visitors to this excellent museum of tile design, ironworks and other artisanal products. When I showed an interest to the material, staff gave me a free private tour of the whole museum. Despite the language barrier, it was a great few hours to spend. Pity this place doesn't get the attention... More

The museum is set out in timeline and shows the extraordinary development of output from a small factory which grew to become a major employer and exporter of goods to... More

A wonderful selection of porcelain from this long lived internationally renowned Factory that survived communism, and everything else Influences from art nouveau, to oriental to secession. And Zolnai won awards all over Europe ... Got to see this museum !

Many architects have used Zsolnay ceramics to decorate the building, especially in the period of the Hungarian Art Nouveau. Among them are certainly the most famous Eden Lehner, Gyula Partos, Bela Lajta, the kiln itself. Almost 1,000 buildings in Europe has pirogranit decoration ceramics, patented in this factory in 1890. Pirogranit ceramics is resistant to weather conditions, and some buildings... More

A trip to Pecs is worth it just to see the Zsolnay collection. It is absolutely amazing the genius of ceramics that was created. Pecs is littered with architectural ceramic details. Look up.

This museum was one of the highlights of Pécs, Hungary. The traditional Zsolnay designs and the more recent art nouveau pieces are spectacular. I also took a look at the factory, but it was not operational on a Sunday. It is recommended that if you want to buy any pieces that you go to the store in downtown Pécs instead... More

The Zsolnay factory was established by Miklós Zsolnay in Pécs, Hungary, to produce stoneware and other ceramics in 1853. We saw Zsolnay ceramics in various forms around Hungary including beautiful church roofs and garden sculptures. This museum has all kinds of unique and beautiful Zsolnay creations. You'll also learn about technologies developed for ceramic products; some never used, others unique... More
