The Museum of Fine Arts dates back to over a 100 years ago, to 1906. The building sits next to Heroes’ Square, opposite the Palace of Arts on a floorspace of 10300 m2, of which 6500 m2 houses the paintings, while the statue galleries occupy 3800 m2. This museum ranks among the major ones in Europe, its seasonal exhibitions have attracted hundreds of thousands of visitors. Unlike the more lucky institutions whose public collections were mainly based on and then enriched by rulers, The Museum of Fine Arts can be thankful for its existence for the Hungarian nobility as only a few works of art got here from the court of Vienna or other rulers of Hungary.
