Hungarian National Gallery

Hungarian Art from the Middle Ages to the Early 20th Century

Established in Buda Castle in 1957, this showcase of Hungarian art from the Middle Ages to the 20th century (90 percent painting, but also sculpture and photography) is a real eye-opener. Collections include medieval/Renaissance stone carving; Gothic wood sculptures and panel paintings; late Gothic altarpieces; High Renaissance/Baroque art; 19th-century painting; 19th-century sculpture; 20th century pre-1945; and a special section devoted to late-19th-century realism. Top names here include Mihály Munkácsy, Pal Szinyei Merse, László Paál and Bertalan Székely. Themes and artists venture internationally a bit as well, with temporary exhibitions and a collection on temporary loan from the Museum of Fine Arts while that museum is closed for renovation. Visiting hours daily except Mondays, 10:00 to 18:00.
