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.

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.
