The Library of the Museum of Fine Arts is the largest art historical library in the country. It primarily supports the scholarly, educational and restoration activities of the museum, but it is also traditionally the library of Hungarian scholarly research and higher education in art history. With its reading room and inter-library lending, it aids in art and restoration training in the art academies. Thanks to the library's prominent scholarly, bibliophile and artistic assets, it is at the same time a book collection of museum stature.



The entrance may be used by physically handicapped visitors.

We also have a lift available.

No food, drinks, bags, garments, and umbrellas are allowed in the Reading Room. Readers are requested to use one of the free lockers located on the ground floor.

Users of personal computers will find electric sockets close to each reading desk. The Library does not take any responsibility for computers left unattended.
