The Magyar Nemzeti Múzeum (Hungarian National Museum) is the biggest museum in Hungary.
This is the second building of the World wich was constructed as a museum, so it had no other function in the past (the first is the Brittish Museum). Built on the plans of Mihály Pollack, and it was inaugurated in 1846. Nowdays it has more than 1.000.000, objects of mostly inestimable value from the prehistorical era to the modern times (for example the royal mantle of Saint Stephen). The building has just been renovated and in 2005, 8 meters underneath the museum long cellars were found, constructed in the the baroque era (XVIII.century).
