Hungarian National Gallery
16 April 2015
The topic of our Museum+ evening on 16 April is DESTINY. If you think “museuming” is your destiny, you should come and visit us. The talks and guided tours (mostly in Hungarian) will focus on fatal liaisons, the ominous fate awaiting artists and the unavoidable destiny. Could it be a fatal mistake to believe in fate? We have invited a theologian, a writer and a criminal psychologist to explore this topic. Card reading, wines from the Villányi wine region, delicious teas and music will complete this evening in the Hungarian National Gallery.

Closing party at the Museum of Fine Arts - SOLD OUT
14 February 2015
This is the last chance for a Bohemian night at the Museum of Fine Arts! The museum will be closing its doors for three years to reopen in 2018 with brand new exhibitions and new spaces. So let’s bid the museum farewell together on Saint Valentine’s evening. Come if you are an art lover, if you are a museum lover, and you want to party!
13 February 2015.
Before closing for three years at midnight on 15 February, the Museum of Fine Arts will bid farewell to the public with concerts, guided tours, film screenings, night-time opening times and other special programmes. On the last two days visitors will be given the chance to say their good-byes to the museum’s permanent exhibitions as well as to the exhibition titled Rembrandt and the Dutch Golden Age, having already attracted over 200 thousand people. To add to this, the Romanesque Hall, which has not been open to the public since World War II, can be viewed. Following extensive reconstruction, the museum will re-open its gates in spring 2018.

Fine art – literature - theatre
11 November 2014.
10 works of fine art, 10 literary texts, 10 actors, 2 directors. The outcome: 5 scenes directed with two different approaches. The plays are intriguing as they are. Free association, dramaturgical knacks, secrets and mysteries in the spaces of the Museum of Fine Arts evocative of church interiors. With much humour and free of all pathos. All this brought under one roof, an unforgettable evening awaits visitors: sculptures and paintings seen through the eyes of writers and directors, revealing so far undiscovered, real and recontextualised meanings. One thing is certain: whoever comes to one of our evenings will never be able to look at the featured masterpieces in quite the same way again.
All Hands on Deck!
8 November 2014.
The winds are picking up - hoist the sails! We're setting off to explore faraway lands, eat exotic food and buy the finest silks. Climb aboard and find out why historians associate the 17th century with the Dutch Golden Age. Was it all down to pirate gold? How did smoking, shipping, fishing, and windmills play their part?

Let me show you this space, this place I found. It's kind of like a tunnel, yet it sometimes feels like a pyramid. Or looks like a pyramid. It depends how you see it. I can show you, actually. Here, take this paper and fold it, now turn it over and fold it again...
