Hungarian National Gallery
One of the most iconic architectural feature of Budapest, the building of the National Gallery is located in the Buda Castle District. The idea of a completely individual museum dedicated to fine art was conceived in the aftermath of the Revolution of 1956. As a result of this, the museum found its home in the domed building in the Castle, the highest point of which yields a spectacular panorama to the whole city. Recently in 2012, the National Gallery and the National Museum of Fine Arts united their exceptionally rich collections in one singe institution. After the restructuring of their collections together with the reopening of the Museum of Fine Arts, the Hungarian and international artworks after 1800 can be seen in the National Gallery within the reorganized permanent exhibitions in the National Gallery, with pieces from such exceptional artists, as Mihály Munkácsy, Pál Szinyei Merse, Miklós Barabás or Monet and Gauguin.
The rentable venues of the Hungarian National Gallery cover almost the whole spectrum of events, since it is an ideal location for gala dinners, receptions, award ceremonies, cocktail parties or corporate team building activities. The memorable experience is enhanced by the panorama terraces, which provide a spectacular view of Budapest. It is our mission to make artistic artefacts integral components of any specific event. With their help we are able to convey what art and the museum life means to us. By using the collection in a creative manner, we provide an exclusive background to any organised event and guarantee a memorable experience. This is what the art of organising events means to us.
