“Unexpected Delight”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 3, 2014

I was unfamiliar with Margit Kovacs but was visiting Szentendre and read a variety of glowing reviews of her work and the museum. I decided to visit the museum, and I'm so glad I did! I thought it was organized well and especially appreciated the English-language descriptions of the phases of her work. There's even a room where you can touch some of her pieces, which was a fantastic experience. About halfway through, you feel like you're leaving the museum, but then you have to go through another door to see the rest of the exhibit. Thank goodness the guide indicated the door, or else I would have simply left. Make sure you go into the second space/building, because there's more artwork and it's where you feel her art for yourself.

The artist donated and curated much of the exhibits in the museum. It was interesting to see the different periods of her works. There is also a room where you can touch her sculptures. the top floor is a re-creation of her studio

“Charming”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2013

One of my all-time favourite museums. The ceramics of Margit Kovács have a unique style, and one by one they are pieces of art. Something between statues and pottery - the pieces are expressive and beautiful.
