To the memory of Jóhn Ilona (Lilike) her husband, dr. István Szondy purchased the house of the family (8 Váralja Rd, Sümeg), then renovated and furnished it by fine art, ethnographic and applied art items, which he gifted to the town of Sümeg in 1988.

As the building was not appropriate for museological purposes, the more than 2000 items were transferred to their current space, the Towm Museum, whereas the archive, the library and other non-exhibited collections of the museum were placed in the memorial house.

The applied art material is made up by the products of the factory in Herend, Italian, Czech, Austrian, French porcelains, valueable glass objects, utility tools and porcelains ornamented by the portraits of the members of the Habsburg-house.

The ceramics of Margit Kovács (1902-1977) make an important part of the Lilike collection. Out of the more than 20 works especially prominent is the one entitled "Fisher with his net", which is one of the early works of the artist.

The exhibition also represents the works of the Sass-Brunner paintr family. Though the two artists had never separated officially, their style had taken different directions as early as in 1929. Ferenc Brunner studied in the painter school of Nagybánya. He lifved in Sümeg from 1920. His wife Erzsébet Sass Brunner (1889-1950) and her daugter ventured to travel around the world in 1929, then moved to India. The paintings seen here got to the museum as gifts of Elisabeth Brunner who still lives in India.
