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.

CULTURAL BONBON – 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 as it would convey the sensation and the fleeting 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, enriching them with new colour and life.
