Zsolnay certified Pecs as an important city and this museum chronicles its growth in text and in myriad displays of the porcelain. It is educational and interesting and a must see while in Pecs.

I visited the Zsolnayi Quarter yesterday to find an absolutely beautiful historic and currently working ceramics facility. The area hosted a number of cafes and a Guest House. We had al intentions to walk through the Zsolnayi family museum, and this is where the trip finished. The old Communist regime may have fallen in 1991, but the attitudes and mannerisms... More

Zsolnay Porcelain is very special. It is heavier than Herend but more robust and inventive, The fountain given to Pécs by the Zsolnay family has statues of Oxen with a beautiful shiny metallic glaze. This glaze can also be seen on pieces in the museum. A must see in Pécs.

Museum was highly recommended but I was sceptical until I saw amazing architectural pieces made in Zsolnay factory. Museum is beautiful and I only wish there were more souvenirs in the museum's shop.

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

What make this so interesting is the variety of work on view ranging from ceramic pictures to dinner sets to decorative pieces for the outside of buildings and outdoors generally. 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
