  • I love seeing the exhibitions with these painters, but this was a disappointment. Tiny drawings of his students and the few works of the two were not relevant. Some frames at the entrance were pretty poorly maintained missing even some details. I believe the best is the permanent exhibition I haven't seen. The building is very interesting!

  • 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.
