This is a fine museum of Margit Kovacs works, but I can't get too excited about pottery....even avant garde pottery.

Wonderful ceramics from an excellent artist. The collection is not too big, but you can have an idea, what Margit Kovács did. The sculptures are beautiful.

Really enjoyed going through this out-of-the-way museum! This woman was incredible; her ceramic art really makes you think and feel. I like her earlier work best.
