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
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
Crowning robe
The coronation mantle was to begin with a bell-shaped, closed chasuble which was later turned into a mantle. According to the embroidered inscription, the chasuble was ordered for, and donated to, the Church of St. Mary in Székesfehérvár by King Stephen and Queen Gisella in 1031. continue
The exhibition entitled 'Study Collection' presents ceramics, glasses and porcelains mostly out of reach of the audience in large. Free guided tours are provided for those purchasing tickets. 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
