District, VII., 2. Dohány Street – Budapest

Just in case it was missed to visit, it is still open for the visitors the unique exhibition  which opened in October of last year and can be still visited until April, 29. 2019. The Hungarian Jewish Museum and Archives opened a joint exhibition with the Herend Porcelain Museum, featuring the story and art of the Herend Seder Plates. The exhibition is on the second floor at the Hungarian Jewish Museum – Budapest.

Herend Porcelain Manufactory operates today as the world’s largest porcelain manufactory and as a profitable enterprise. Herend achieves the balance of tradition and innovation passing on its 19th Century traditions into the 21st Century.

The Herend porcelains are one-by-one only painted by Master-Painters, so it is a Very High Standard Product. A real artwork of hand-making unique pieces.

The exhibit highlights two dozen ornate Seder plates made for wealthy Hungarian Jews by the famed Herend Porcelain Manufactory. If you view the plate’s illustrations carefully, you can trace the increasing assimilation of Jews into Hungary. The Hungarian Jewish Museum stands  jointly at the venue  to the Dohány Street Synagogue.

Admission ticket to the exhibition is 4000HUF/person which covers access to the museum and guided tour to the synagogue.
