A taste of the exhibition
Pottery has been practiced from the 18th century in Tata. Pottery products from Tata were exported to far away lands but could also be found in households around and in town. Décor written in blue and green was a typical way of ornamenting pottery. continue
The room with frescoes from the Roman period
In the room upstairs, the reconstruction of a room with frescoes once located in Briegetio can be seen. Fragments from the 2nd century AD were found in 1961. The reconstruction of the frescoes took over three decades. Most of the scenes are involved with Greek mythology. Carvings from the era of the kings Zsigmons and Mátyás are located downstairs, as well as relics from the Benedictine monastery of Vértesszentkereszt from the 12-13th century continue
