Museum+ March


Thursday 6 p.m. – 10 p.m. 14 March 2019

The 2019 Museum+ evenings organised around the permanent exhibition of the Museum of Fine Arts can be visited free of charge thanks to the generous support of OTP Bank and MVM Hungarian Electricity Plc.

Admission to the events is free but registration is required.

Our successful Museum+ series will continue in 2019 with nine evenings of extended opening hours. The more than ten-year-old programme series awaits visitors with the usual events and introducing brand new themes every month: guided tours, workshops, guest stars, concerts, dance and literary performances, fine food and special wine selections will help everyone to explore and become better acquainted with the museum’s collections.

Following the practice of British museum evenings, in 2019 admission to all the Museum+ programmes at the Museum of Fine Arts Budapest will be free. So kick off the evening with us, bring your date here, discover the revamped collections and charge yourselves up with new experiences.

Classical and contemporary reflections – music, dance, theatre, poetry and improvisation in the collections
Strange things happen in the museum at night. Have you ever felt that a melody, a poem or a movement would be a perfect match for a work of art because it would convey the sensation and the magic you experience when looking at it? This evening, interesting melodies, well-known poems and movements will accompany the artworks in the museum’s collections of painting, infusing them with new colour and life.

We reserve the right to change the programme.

We kindly inform you that due to monument protection regulations the number of participants in the presentations and guided tours is limited and on a first come, first served basis. Please make your plans accordingly.
