Kalocsa, Museum of Folk Art

We found something that was open and interesting, although pretty dark inside. The monitor was running ahead of us turning on lights as we went though the museum and then turning them off the moment we moved on. This is the famous Kalocsa embroidery, the main reason I wanted to visit the city. Unfortunately I didn't find too much of it to buy as I believe all the best pieces are sent to Budapest for the tourist trade.
