Looking onto Heroes' Square (Hősök tere), the Museum of Fine Arts is known for its diverse collection of European works. Find drawing and painting from the 13th through the 18th centuries, and a celebrated Old Hungarian Collection. Visitors can buy same-day tickets, but most travelers prefer to buy passes in advance, often at a discount. Several city tours pass by the museum's neoclassical building and may include a river cruise—offering great value, and the opportunity to see more in less time.
Things to know before you go
- Design enthusiasts shouldn't miss the Prints and Drawings Collection, which includes more than 100,000 works.
- Art aficionados find paintings from renowned European artists, from El Greco and Velázquez to Monet and Cézanne.
- History fans should be sure to visit the Romanesque Hall, which recently reopened after being damaged by a bomb, in 1945.
- The museum hosts gallery tours—and museum walks—of the permanent collection and temporary exhibits.
- Free museum admission is offered to Budapest Card holders.
How to get there
Because of its central location, getting to the museum by public transportation is your best bet. Take the Millennium Underground (M1) metro—the yellow line—to Heroes' Square. When you step out of the underground, you'll see the museum's beautiful, colonnaded exterior. Taxis are also a great option for getting around Budapest, but expect to pay for the convenience.
When to get there
The museum is open Tuesday to Sunday, from 10am to 6pm, and is closed on Mondays. As the museum is occasionally renovated—and is frequently hosting temporary exhibitions—confirm that the galleries you'd like to see are open on the day you're visiting. Weekends are busiest, so plan to arrive during the week to avoid crowds.
Soaking in Budapest's Famous Thermal Baths
Experience one of the great Hungarian traditions at the Széchenyi Thermal Bath, only a short walk from the Museum of Fine Arts. Purchase a full-day ticket and plan to soak in the indoor and outdoor pools, sweat out your stress in the saunas, or pamper yourself with a massage. The neo-baroque building and soothing, mineral-rich waters are the perfect compliments to a rejuvenating afternoon.
