27 February 2018.

After more than three years of reconstruction, the Museum of Fine Arts Budapest will reopen its doors this October. The museum will await visitors in its renovated building with permanent exhibitions arranged according to a new concept after its collection’s reunification with that of the Hungarian National Gallery. The renewed institution and the new exhibitions will be opened to the general public in two stages: the spaces in the basement and the recently renovated Romanesque wing can be visited from 31 October, and all the new exhibitions can be viewed from the middle of 2019.

The renewed Romanesque Hall of the Museum of Fine Arts will be open to the public from 15 March to 2 April, 2018, free of charge

The renewed Romanesque Hall of the Museum of Fine Arts will be open to the public from 15 March to 2 April, free of charge, every day - including Easter holiday - from 10 am, last admission is at 5 pm. Entry is on ʺfirst come, first served” basis: WE DO NOT ARRANGE RESERVATION OR BOOKING (not even for groups). We do not provide tour guides. Due to the limited capacity of the museum hall, the number of visitors is limited, therefore occasionally waiting outside the building can be expected.​ THE MUSEUM CAN BE VISITED AGAIN FROM 31 OCTOBER, 2018.
