Hungarian National Museum - Budapest
The museum building
Address: 1088, Budapest Múzeum körút 14-16.
Phone number: (1) 338-2122
Opening hours: Tue-Sun 10-18
The foundation of the museum coincided with significant changes in the course of Hungarian history, the development of the national consciousness of the New Age, the spreading of the civic notion of freedom. In 1802 the Count Ferenc Széchényi asked for permission from the Emperor to give his collection in connection with Hungary to the nation. He received permission, thus we take this time to be the year of the foundation of the Hungarian National Museum. continue
Permanent exhibitions
A taste of the exhibition
The exhibition displays the most characteristic stone relics of the internationally acclaimed collection of the museum: niche, tombstones, sarcophaguses, pieces of little, temple shaped sepulchers, altars, and inscriptions of constructions. continue
A taste of the exhibition
The exhibition has two separate parts: the architectural remains are on the side of the stairs of the ward; the pieces of the extremely rich collection of tombstones from Buda and other parts of the country represent the main types and the conformation of the motives of the tombstones of the different periods of the Middle Ages. continue
The exhibition opens with an introduction to the longest period of humanity's biological and social development: the transitory Stone Age. We conjure up the life of an imagined hunter's camp inside the walls of the cave of Istállóskő which was built up around the original fireplace. continue
King Matthias and the Jagellos
The Hungarian National Museum was founded 200 years ago. It exhibits famous items, a number of which can be seen in the permanent historical exhibition opened on the millennial anniversary in 1996. The exhibition represent the history of Hungary from the conquest to the change of regime in our days. The coronation mantle is also kept here. continue
