Lonely Planet review

This charming branch of the Óbuda Museum displays a collection of folk art amassed by a wealthy ethnographer in his 18th-century town house. Most of the pottery and ceramics are from Mezőtúr near the Tisza River, but there are also some rare Moravian and Swabian pieces as well as Transylvanian furniture and textiles. The attendants are very proud of the collection so be prepared for some lengthy explanations. And don’t ask about the priceless tile stove that a workman knocked over a couple of years back (unless you want to see a grown man cry).
