Overview
More
Established as the local history collection of the town in 1951 and named after artist Károly Ferenczy, the museum was relocated to a historic monument building, the 18th-century Pajor Mansion in Kossuth Lajos Street in 2013. In 2016 the museum changed its name to Ferenczy Museum Centre, and today it owns a uniquely rich collection of Szentendre’s painting, graphic art, sculpture, and numismatic art. On the second floor of the building’s old wing one may get a taste of the works of The Eight, founders of the old artists’ settlement in 1926. The exhibition is currently being rearranged. There are two temporary exhibition halls on the first floor. The works of contemporary Szentendre artists are exhibited in Szentendre Hall, whereas in Barcsay Hall projects of national and international artists can be viewed.

The Ferenczy family had a lot of great artists. You can see here in the collection some works of different family members. It is worth to visit.

Really loved the feel at Ferenczy Karoly Muzeum (Charles Ferenczy Museum). The collection isn't anything vast but is lovely too look at.

We visited this museum largely because of our shared family name. I was impressed, however, by the museum. The art collection is well presented in a way that describes the influences on the various family artists, and the facility is excellent. During our visit, the...More

This is a nice collection of the works by the Ferenczy family. Follow the recommended sequence of rooms, and read the descriptions in each room - you will see an interesting family history inter-twinned with several regime changes and two world wars. Tip: For whatever...More
