Hungarian National Gallery (Magyar Nemzeti Galeria) reviews
So much amazing artwork and sculptures! The Hungarian art really gave a stronger understanding of the proud Hungarian culture. There were so many fantastic pieces that it would be difficult to pick a.... more »
There is only one word to describe the museum: wonderful. Immense, with a huge amount of works of art. The museum structure is also very beautiful. more »
It has A LOT of things to see. Visit it if you're interested in Hungarian art. Although you'll find big names like Cezanne, the majority is made up of (great) Hungarian artists. I had the luck to visit it during a temporary exhibition by Fortepan and another temporary exhibition on Surrealism. You can also skip the museum and just go to the temporary exhibitions if that's what interests you (the tickets are sold separately).
Lots to see and learn. The staff are friendly. Wear comfortable shoes. There's a bit of a lineup around lunch or when it rains. Amazing view from the dome. It's unobscured, and I recommend that you check it out.
