Ferenc Hopp (1833-1919), an optician and great traveller within his state, donated to the state the objects brought back from many trips to Asia. This museum, his former villa, is opened on a rota system.
The collection based on 19th century art collector Ferenc Hopp’s collection of 4000 items of East Asian, and primarily Japanese and Chinese, objects today has around 19,000 art objects. Among the pieces on display in the art collector’s former house are important Japanese medieval art items and Chinese bronzes and porcelain-ware.
