Agricultural Demonstration Garden

Sights

The Georgikon Manor Museum, established in 2013, presents the Festetics period farming in an experience-oriented way. We can find a vineyard, an orchard, a spice garden, a petting zoo, a play barn, folk games, a lounge for adults, and a stove house. Children can get to know farming in a playful way. The farm is an ideal location for meaningful relaxation for all family members, as well as for birthdays, family and corporate events. The museum was awarded the Family-Friendly Museum title in 2021!

“We were on a program organized around threshing, the children really enjoyed the place, they organized a great program, it was interesting.”
