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.

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.
