From series “Strange, Weird and Unusual Museums Amusing its Visitors”
The best museum in the world for Hungarians is located in Hungary, in the city of Szentendre. All exhibits in the 'sweetest' museum of the planet are made of marzipan. The founder of the museum is the world-famous confectioner Károly Szabó. The marzipan museum was opened in 1994, since then its collection has been constantly expanded and renewed. The museum halls are a mediatory between the sumptuous pastry shop and the art gallery. Sometimes you can hardly believe that the masterpieces presented in the glass-paneled glass windows are literally made of sugar.

Marzipan Museum, Hungary 'The sweet reproductions' of the world-famous paintings, the old furniture, the numerous statuettes and the tiny copies of the famous sights - the boom in the imagination of the talented confectioner is simply surprising. The most original museum expositions are the figure of Michael Jackson, as well as the realistic portrait of Mozart. Most of the exhibits exhibited were made by Károly Szabó. Some masterpieces were created by his talented pupils.

One of the halls, in spite of the museum's particularity, is devoted to the historical theme, and more precisely to the complicated relations between Austria and Hungary, which have also influenced the life of the talented confectioner. At present there are 5 marzipan museums in the world, the most famous and most visited is the museum in Szentendre. The popular museum is combined with the pastry shop and the cozy café, where visitors can taste the delicious original sweets and buy the exclusive gifts. Next - Museum of Smoking
