Miksa Róth (1865–1944) was a prolific mosaic and stained-glass artist who produced breathtaking, colorful works, many of which can be seen on and in buildings around town. Located on a seventh district side street, this off-the-beaten-path museum is not just about learning about a great artist, but also about getting an up-close look at how 19th-century Budapesters lived. The apartment, which was his last residence, looks nearly the same as when Róth still lived here. True, it's a rather ordinary apartment, compared to how extraordinary his stained glass was, and how famous he became for his work. Examples of Róth's work in Budapest can be seen at the Four Seasons, the Agricultural Museum, the Music Academy, and Parliament.
