Why visit: modern and contemporary Hungarian art, Amerigo Tot memorial, quaint little sculpture garden
Founded in 1953, Koller Gallery is the oldest private gallery in Hungary. They focus on modern and contemporary art, featuring Hungarian artists.

Their works are still part of the collection.

Numerous artworks and some of his personal belongings are on display. A small, renaissance-style sculpture garden is also part of the gallery.
