Tokaj Museum

Northern Hungary

The Tokaj Museum, in an 18th-century mansion built by Greek wine traders, leaves nothing unsaid about the history of Tokaj and the Hegyalja region. There’s also a superb collection of Christian liturgical art, including icons, medieval crucifixes and triptychs, Judaica from the former Great Synagogue, and temporary exhibits by local artists. There's also an old wine cellar with exhibits below the museum.
