Overview

The Museum of Fine Arts, Budapest houses the most significant European Art collection of the region between Vienna and St. Petersburg. The exhibitions halls delight visitors with an array of splendid compositions by Raphael, El Greco, Velázquez, Rembrandt, Tiepolo, Goya, Manet, Monet, Toulouse-Lautrec, Cézanne and Chagall, among many others. In 2007 the museum joined the ranks of those museums that attract the highest numbers of visitors worldwide.The Museum of Fine Arts was built as part of the celebrations surrounding the 1,000th anniversary of the founding of Hungary and was inaugurated by King and Emperor Franz Joseph on December 1, 1906. The building simultaneously recalls both an antique temple and a Renaissance palace. The Egyptian Art Collection of the museum is one of the richest of its kind in Central Europe. The Classical Antiquities Collection embraces the entire period of antiquity. The Old Masters’ Collection is represented by around three thousand paintings of the most important eras of European painting from the 13th till the end of the 18th century. Visitors can enjoy the famous sculptures of Sansovino, Riemenschneider and Messerschmidt, in the newly renovated rooms of the new permanent collection of the Old Sculptures Collection in 2013. The Prints and Drawings Collection is an inexhaustible treasure trove embracing the history of drawing and reproductive techniques in Europe. Its approximately 10 000 drawings and 100 000 prints can be seen in the course of temporary exhibitions. The Department of Art after 1800 covers the works of world famous artists as well.

This is a stunning building - clearly the Hungarians did not 'collect' art from across the world as other European countries did but this is still a collection worth seeing. Gallery isn't crowded and the setting is lovely - nice views out of the windows...More

The museum shows amazing. Unfortunately the exhibition was closed. And for that is the vote. Is it possible not to provide any information for that? Shame and disappointment.
