This small museum exclusively displays the ceramics created by Kovacs. Do not skip the video to see her actually create one of her pieces. I didn't know what to expect but I was fascinated by her sweet subjects and skilled creations.

Lovley ceramic art by a seemingly prized budapest artist, tickets are very cheap. Margrits ceramic creations are very folksy with religious and mythical themes, her work uses beautiful colored glazes with a lot of natural clay and texture still showing. There were tv and interactive screens to encourage audience participation with the work but unfortunately these were not working on... More

Margit Kovacs was a great sculptor. Her art radiates intimate humanity and represents a unique voice in ceramic art. I leave in the neighborhood, and time to time visit her museum to cure my soul in this troubled world. The museum is in the heart of a beautiful small city Szentendre nearby Budapest.

What Margit Kovacs did with clay is amazing! Everything from tiles to statues with incredible imagination, humor and humanity. This museum in her former house is little known and deserves more recognition.

This museum has the most amazing art by Margit Kovacs. The pieces are so varied that it is hard to believe that one person did it all. It is a must see.

We wandered in here almost on accident. Entrance was included in our purchase of a ticket at the Ferenczy Museum elsewhere in Szentendre. What a fascinating and fabulous collection of ceramics that also tells you a lot about the life of the artist and her times. Brilliantly presented. Right off the Main Square of the city. Highly recommend.

Converted from the very house she lived in, the museum showcases the life and some key works of Margit Kovacs. Excellent exhibit of her playful, sometimes ironic style and her endless love of her country's people and their lives.

We made a very pleasant day trip from Budapest. There is a train which operates near the Danube - it took 90 min. The better option (for our rtn.) was the bus which operates to/from metro station at the north end of Line 3. Both cost 310 Forint. We wanted to visit the museum but there was a problem. If... More
