This was a disappointing stop as it is most oriented for children. It’s a good exhibit but I don’t recommend it for adults.

Decent coffee, small variety of cakes and biscuits but they are OK. If you are really interested in lavender, particularly the history of lavender on the Tihany peninsular, then there is a film you can see here. The shop sells good postcards, by Hungarian standards, and a variety of lavender-themed objects (as do many shops in Tihany) most of which are NOT made in Hungary, let alone in Tihany. But some are Hungarian made - check the labels if you are shopping for authentic lavender products. Excellent, good quality and cheap t-shirts with Balaton Uplands animal tracks on them - I love these, often buy them as presents and they are our main reason for going to the Lavender House occasionally. The place would have more stars if only the shop took cards - cash only. That is unacceptable in this day and age, and unfortunately it is still far too common to find this in Hungary. Next to the Lavender House is the inner lake, a fishing lake. There is a rustic bridge you can walk along in the reeds, with descriptions of the wild life you can see in and around the water. Let me know if ever you see any of them! I've never even seen an egret, a bird that is very common around at the Lake. Souslik can be spotted on the old football ground by the Lavender House as well.

In this Museum you will get a 20-minute-movie about lavender and its cultural and scientific history. Also there are workshops about lavender, which is very nice also for children. For example we did get a glass of lavender jam for free, which was freshly produced right in front of us and the children did make handcraft flower sets with lavender.
Also there is a nice little coffee shop (many drinks and sweets with lavender ingredients, you should really try the fantastic kakao with real lavender chocolate) and a shop with many lavender products.
