Folk Art Collection


A dozen rooms of a 200-year-old brewery are crammed with embroidery, weaving, woodcarving, furniture, agricultural tools and textiles at the Folk Art Collection, the grandaddy of all Kecskemét museums. Styles from across the entire region are represented and a few local handicrafts are for sale at the reception. It's located about 1.5km southwest of Kossuth tér.
