The Hall of Art was founded in 1877, it's first home was the actual Art University's building under Andrassy Avenue 69-71.
The buiding of the "new" Hall of Art was built according to the plans of Albert Schikedanz in 1896, together with the Millenium Memorial and the Museum of Fine Arts on the other side.
The Museum is hosting Hungarian and international contemporary exhibitions and other art related events (furniture and antiques expositions) as well. At the entrance there is an excellent art-book shop.
Opening hours: 10 am to 6 pm every day (10am to 8 pm on Thursday), closed on Mondays.
The reconstruction of the building of the Hall of Art started in 1991and it was only reopened in 1995. But it was well worth to wait! Good job! :)
Here you can see the entrance hall from the door of the book-shop.
On the right side of the Hosok tere there is a very nice building built in 1895 by Albert Schickedanz and Fulop Herzog: the Mucsarnok. In this building, with a neoclassic facade with a mosaic timpan and columns, there are permanent shows of arts.
This is an amazing building, built like a palace at 1896 by the architect Albert Schickedanz, at the time when the Millenium monument was constructed.
In the entrance you will see 6 huge column and above them there are engraving of old historical stories.
The building been renovated between 1991-1994 and now its open to public.
