Fascinating small collection of famous artist's works in a charming domestic setting. Pieces provide a sensitive combination of humanity with deeply felt spirituality in a unique fashion. Film showing Ms. Kovacs at work should not be missed.

Beautiful place, absolutely stunning art! There museum was part of city museum tour card. Only port they don't allow photos inside, so you try to remember all that beauty with your eyes. Absolute must see!

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.
