The Museum of Applied Arts is housed in a building that is one of the most outstanding art nouveau examples of Budapest. It was built in the 90s of the 19th century according to plans of Hungarian architects Ödön Lechner and Gyula Pártos. Typically to Lechner's style, it features both local ceramics and Islamic and Hindi motifs, and stands out among other buildings with its emerald-color ceramic tile roof. Its collection boasts unique samples of applied arts of Hungarian and other European nations, spanning a period of time between 16th century and nowadays. It holds marvelous samples of Italian majolica, French furniture, goldsmiths' works from Augsburg and the Esterházy Family jewelry. You'll be able to appreciate Zsolnay Ceramics and Hungarian artisan textiles there, garments, bronze and porcelain items as well as musical instruments, jewelry, tableware, clocks and much more.
