Georgikon Manor Museum and Experience Farm
The Georgikon Major Museum's Experience Farm, located not far from the Festetics Castle, is a 1.5 hectare atmospheric demonstration garden that commemorates the agricultural activities carried out in the major. Animal petting, play barn, plant exhibition, gazebo rest area, playground and baking place welcome visitors.
Agricultural Demonstration Garden
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!
