What awaits you
The collection of the museum is unusually rich: you can choose any period that interests you or take part in a sightseeing tour. I will tell you about the history of the building, which, alas, was never a royal palace, and I will show the only hall that reminds of its past. It now houses a wonderful exhibition of winged altars from the late Gothic period: each altar has its own history and its own mystery.
A small exhibition of the Renaissance period reminds of the glorious past of the Kingdom of Hungary during the time of King Matthias. Find out who Beatrice is and how she influenced Hungarian art.
The 19th century is a time of reforms and development of Hungarian art, a century of national tragedies, dramas, travels, novels and, of course, wonderful muses. How did the marble "Shepherdess" become the muse of poets, what depicts the first Hungarian landscape, in which buildings of Budapest did he hide his beauty Cornelia Kara Lotz, and why did Pal Sinei Mersche turn his back on us at the May Picnic? I will answer all these questions and introduce you to the Hungarian Mona Lisa by Sineya Mersche. You will find out what Isadora Duncan did in Budapest and with whom of the Hungarian artists Picasso wanted to create Cubism. You have to decide whether Chontvari's paintings are similar to those of Pirosmani, and I will certainly show you the halls of Mihai Munkachi, because his works are gradually disappearing. Believe me, Hungarian art is one of the most fascinating in Europe!
The price of the tour does not include tickets to the museum - about 9 euros or 2.800 HUF per person.
