Fruhmannn Tile Stove Exhibition
Located in the so-called Fruhmann House, this collection is unique within Hungary but likely also in other countries. The house the museum is located in belonged to a family that was making tile stoves over at least three generations. The last surviving member of the family, Antal Fruhmann (1908-1987) donated his house and workshop to the municipality of Győr in order to establish a museum for tile stove making that was a common business in the city.
The museum is located in two buildings. In the first building you can learn about the Fruhmann family as well as the tile stove making families that used to live in Győr. In the mansard there’s a workshop where school classes can try out making tiles from the original specimen that Mr. Fruhmann donated to the city.
