Haáz Rezső Museum

Székely Land

This lacey-looking building, 1900-built Haberstumpf cottage, seems slightly lost, standing next to the roaring main road through town. But the gallery within is excellent. It features mostly 20th-century art, much of it modern interpretations of the Hungarian and Romanian countryside, with plenty of striking sculptures and surreality around its several exhibition rooms.
