Budapest Museum of Fine Arts - Szépművészeti Múzeum

The temporary and permanent exhibitions of the museum are world famous. It is adjacent to the largest park in Budapest, the zoo, the Széchenyi Spa and Heroes' Square.
The Museum of Fine Arts formed the private collection of the wealthy Hungarian Esterházy family. The paintings, drawings and engravings from this collection were sold to the state of Hungary in 1870. The collection has grown considerably since then and is now the largest in Central Europe with works by Leonardo, Raffaello, Titian, Dürer, El Greco, Velázquez, Rubens, Rembrandt, Van Dyck, Tiepolo, Goya, Manet, Monet, Toulouse-Lautrec, Renoir and Cézanne.
As in all major museums, the Museum of Fine Arts has permanent and temporary exhibitions. The permanent exhibition basically consists of three major collections, one of which is housed in the Hungarian National Gallery in Buda Castle. This has a historical reason: the Hungarian works were selected from the original collection in 1957 and shown as a separate exhibition. Therefore, in the building of the Museum of Fine Arts, European works of art from the 13th century to the end of the 18th century are exhibited today, on the basis of which the development of European painting and sculpture and the changes in style over time can be traced. In addition to the portfolio of the National Gallery, there is a third large collection, which includes ancient Greek and Roman sculptures and Egyptian artifacts from antiquity.
