The location

A community space in the Eggenberg House, based on the collections of the Sopron Museum, is designed for children and play-loving adults.

The interior courtyard of the listed building houses the museum's educational activity area and the Children's Museum's interactive exhibition space is located at the street front of the house.

In 2018, the Cobbles Children's Museum was named Exhibition of the Year for its permanent exhibition. The institution won the prestigious award for its playful presentation of the museum's collection, taking into account the specificities of childhood. 

We have created a niche community space for the youngest children, where they can explore the world of bygone eras in their own way, through play.
