The Budapest Museum of Applied Arts is a piece of art in and of itself.  It is a great place to go if you are looking to spend the day immersed in the inventive history of early Hungarian culture.  The building itself was designed by the famous architect Ödön Lechner, and completed 1896.  Lechner made the building in the classic Hungarian Art Noveau style, which seems to contrast his later work.

The museum features Hungarian folk ceramics, including majolica and Zsolnay pottery.   There are several handmade objects as well as mass produced antiques on display, many of which provide Islamic and Hindu themes. The museum also has rare, unique, and priceless items gracing its rooms and hallways.  Some of the items include carved ivory, pearl ornaments, leatherwork, and book binding materials. The items on display illustrate the development of Hungarian skilled crafts.

Many people are equally impressed with the artifacts as they are with the building’s architectural magnificence. The three-story building has red granite siding and patterned roofing that is quite beautiful and iconic to Budapests city-scape.  In the front portion of the house is a statue of Lechner himself, made by famous sculptor B. Faraks in 1936.
