The Museum of Fine Arts can be find at the left side of Heroes square. At the right side is the Hall of Art can be found. The building is huge with very big heights at each of the four levels. The Museum of Fine Arts is one of the most “serious” museums in Budapest. The total number of Artworks owned by the museum is well above 100,000. In the Artworks lots of artworks of the most famous European artists like Rembrandt, Leonardo Da Vinci, Goya, Monet, Dürer, Rafaello can be find. The Hungarian artworks are mostly had been given to the National Gallery in the Castle district. The museum has permanent and temporary exhibitions. The permanent exhibitions can be found at groundfloor and the two upper levels. The artworks of the permanent exhibitions are mostly from the 14th to 19th century. Paintings, sculptures with biblical themes, ancient gods and figures, landscapes, still lifes, animals, birds, etc. The Italian artworks can be found in the groundfloor, the Dutch “Golden age” at the second floor. To see all exhibited artwork in one time is a tiring experience, so much paintings and sculptures can be seen there. The building itself is also gorgeous: arches, with huge halls, decorated floors and ceilings. If we intend to make photos a special ticket for photography must be bought for around 1 Eur (300 Eur).
This exhibitions changes time to time. The latest ones are: Paul Cézanne, Helmut Newton, Egon Schiele. From 26th of October to 16th of February from Caravaggio to Canaletto. From 14th of November to 16th of February 2014 Raffaello renaissance drawings and engravings from the Collections of the Museum.
