300 Museums and Exhibition Spaces in Hungary

This book presents the most important museums and exhibition spaces in Hungary. The goal in the creation of this detailed but pithy collection, brief summaries of the histories of the institutions with descriptions of their collections, was to provide a comprehensive overview of museum life in Hungary, demonstrating its remarkable diversity, including internationally recognised points of interest and many less familiar but equally captivating treasures. We hope to prompt the reader to explore the great wealth of the many collections, and we are confident that the book will serve as a useful guide for visitors to Hungary, both those who thirst to learn more about its cultural life, past and present, and those who wish merely to complement their travels in our homeland with a visit to one or two of our many museums and exhibitions.
