Fun treasure hunting for children
Apr 2019 • Family
The museum itself is of course nice but would be less interesting for young kids without the fun treasure game the museum offers for them that takes them all the way and makes them look at the exhibition objects.

Great representation of Herend porcelain
Jul 2017 • Friends
We bought a combined ticket to the Porcelanium and the Porcelain Museum. The museum was quite interesting, but unfortunately due to an ongoing exhibition in Japan, some pieces from the historic collection was not displayed. Here you can see unique pieces and understand the history of the Herend Porcelain. The modern collection is not shown here, only in the shop.

You can feel the luxury!
Apr 2017 • Couples
We spent a wonderful half-day in Herend Porcelanium. There is a great option: a combination ticket --> You can get in the Porcelain Museum, Mini manufacture and cafe. Since it was Easter, there was an interesting activity for kids, but also for adults. It was actually really cool. The porcelain pieces are beautiful. The manufacture gives you a quite interesting insider to imagine how a piece of porcelain made in this manufacture. The guide knows his job and answers all questions. After this tour you will understand why porcelain from Herend is so expensive. The thirs element of the tour is a free coffee/tea etc in the cafe, where you can feel the real luxury provided by Herend.

Well worth a visit

One can not only see how the items are made, but the Porcelain Museum offers visitors a fascinating look at so many of the exquisite items that come out of the Herend factory, and of course one can dig deep into the pocketbook and buy porcelain wear on the spot. There are so many pieces on display, many leaving the visitor in awe while viewing the beautiful designs.

You got to walk both side of the bridge to see the beautiful views of Budapest. I loved it and took a lot of photos.

Royalty-class Quality Porcelain & My Favourite Designs
Sep 2016 • Friends
The Herend factory was established in 1826 and commenced with the production of fine porcelain pieces for royalty and noble families.

I’ve been to the Herend Factory and adjacent retail store about ten times, often seeking to view their newest offerings. Years ago, one of my father’s first cousins was the plant manager of the factory production. From my first visit in 1974, I’ve taken a liking to Herend animal figurines and some other hand-painted pieces of Herend’s approximate offering of about 16,000 shapes, most available in a few different colours> Over the years I’ve purchased over 250 pieces including a Herend porcelain painting. The majority of these I have purchased at prices ranging from US$250 to US$3,500. I have then spread throughout my house, with the majority being in four curios.

This time I took some friends to for the guided tour of the factory, museum and retail store. The factory tour was great. You learn the history and growth of Herend porcelain, how it developed and the various stages of production, and a lot about the many patterns available and how some evolved over the years.

I like many of the pieces, but my favourites include: 5.8” in height lion cubs, large 9.5” in height elephant, small 2” in height running rabbit, camel lying on the ground, little tiger cub, pair of ducks (I have this in all three sizes), three wise monkeys, Persian dancer with pink dress, man smoking pipe sitting while riding on donkey (large figurine), and large bear with cub between its front legs.

An advantage of buying pieces from the Herend factory and other of its stores is that when exiting Hungary one can generally get a refund of the majority of the Value-Added-Tax (VAT), making it generally less expensive than purchasing abroad. Also, the inventory offering is the largest in the world.

The village of Herend, which is home to the Herend factory/museum/retail store, is about 36 km from the town of Pápa in the county of Veszprém.

I'm scratching my head
Sep 2016 • Couples
We drove quite a distance to go to the Herend Factory and when we arrived we immediately went to their "gift" shop and purchased several rather expensive items. To our surprise, after spending over $1000 on a porcelain coffee pot, they wanted to charge us to go into the factory/museum to see how it's made. I don't know, maybe I'm wrong but I would've thought a purchase of their products would have enabled you to a free ticket to see how they were made. Not a pleasant experience (but I will say the lady in the shop was extremely helpful, friendly and just a delight to work with)... I can't say the same for the unfriendly people at the entrance-way to the factory/museum.

Wall of Herend pattern plates
Jul 2016 • Solo
Nice museum showing the history of the famous Herend porcelain. There's a wall for example which shows all the patterns used on Herend sets, like the famous Victoria pattern created for British Queen Victoria.
The museum building is right next to the factory and opposite to the Minimanufacture, the Restaurant Apicius and the brand shop.
Garden couldn't be visited in July, but there was a temporary exhibition on water as a pattern in art.
The Minimanufacture is more interesting than the Museum, but be advised to visit both as they have a combined ticket.
Cash only.
