Disappointing: The Museum of Applied Arts is closed due to the renovation of the building. Neither online, nor onsite they announce the date of reopening.

I chose to go to the museum of applied arts before the national museum primarily because of the building in which it is housed. The building is indeed great and worth a visit by itself. However, the collection, at least whilst I was there, was...More

The Museum's permanent collection dates back to 1400 and includes some very impressive pieces. The In the Mood for Colours Exhibitions is a must-see! This Museum is a must-see for people who like architecture, interior design and fashion.

The building is amazing and very interesting, and the exhibition was both interesting and beautiful. We spent a most enjoyable hour there. Highly recommended.

The permanent collection here contains beautiful examples of Hungarian craftsmanship, including ceramics, silver wares, textiles and furniture. The pieces show that Hungarian design during the age of the Austro-Hungarian Empire was equal to that found in Vienna. The museum building itself is architecturally stunning. My...More
