The impozing exhibition demonstrates all of the 5 branches of the popular applied arts, which are: a wood carving, pottery, embroydery, weaving and popular handcrafts.

Ceramics from Mezőtúr, Nádudvar, Hódmezővásárhely, Karcag, Upper Tiszanian region and Trans-Danubian ceramics represent the rich traditions of Hungarian pottery. The ethnographical regions are demonstrated by the embroyderies of varous ethnic groups such as the Kalocsai, Matyó, Palóc, Sárköz, Kunság, Bereg and some others. We can find a rich variety of popular hand craft items in our museum. We can see carved and painted furniture, horse hair jewelries, wrought iron objects, ornamented eggs, falk music instruments and many other outstanding items of the popular arts of past decades.

The Popular Applied Arts Council founded in the 1950'ies collected more than 11 thousands of items during the decades. More than 1000 of these are exhibited i the Museum of Kecskemét.
