After reconstruction work lasting over 3 years, the Museum of Fine Arts, Budapest will open its doors once again in October 2018. It is not only the building that has undergone renovation – thanks to the museum’s reunification with the Hungarian National Gallery, visitors can now enjoy revamped permanent exhibitions that have been devised according to a totally new concept. The new galleries will be opened to the public in two stages: the lower ground floor and the newly restored Romanesque Wing will open on 31 October 2018, while the remaining permanent exhibitions are due to open in mid-2019.
The museum’s exhibition concept has been radically transformed: after an absence of more than four decades, Hungarian art is making a comeback in the Museum of Fine Arts. From now on, alongside Egyptian and Classical art, the history of universal and Hungarian art until the end of the eighteenth century will be presented together, side by side.
