Kovács Margit Ceramic Museum
2000 Szentendre, Vastagh György utca 1.
One of Szentendre’s most popular museums, opened in 1973, presents the lifework of Kossuth Prize-laureate ceramic artist Margit Kovács (1902–1977). The collection was donated in 1972 by the artist, who is considered to be the innovator of Hungarian ceramic art. The over 300 works, embracing the entire lifework of Kovács, are figural compositions. The second-floor gallery of the new wing presents the reconstruction of Margit Kovács’s home on Pozsonyi Road with her potter’s wheel.
The official copies of her most well-known ceramics are on display in the last room. The blind and visually impaired can also touch these.
