"The National Museum" National Museum - Magyar Nemzeti M˙zeum Tip by DPando


The Hungarian National Museum is a museum of history. Its task is to collect, preserve, and process the historical material in connection with Hungary and its introduction to the people. This process has been practiced for over 200 years by the museum.

In 1807 The Hungarian Parliament nationalized the new institution and asked the nation to donate. One of the most valuable donations was that of the wife of the founder, Julia Festetics's mineral collection, which provided the basis for the Hungarian Natural History Museum.

Though the building was totally renovated in 1926-27, WWII caused serious damages in it which were repaired by 1948.
