I was here three months ago, and visiting Hero Square I asked myself which of this gallery and the museum of fine arts (most famous and important) was better to visit, I decided to opt for both and I must say that I couldn't have made a better choice. I also found a live performance by an artist downstairs. Modern gallery, very low price, progressive in terms of exposure and in the form and content of the paintings. This gallery is part of the museums where you have to immerse yourself in the paintings, perhaps with a pair of headphones, observe and interpret. There is also a nice room with photographs, mainly in black and white. Also I really liked the quotes written on the walls, they give a sense of harmony between the paintings and the spaces that host them
I was able to come here for 'free' after buying the Budapest card. It is an interesting museum for sure and well worth the trip, especially if you're in the area anyhow. That being said, the gallery is very unique in a lot of it's showings and not every exhibit might be to your liking. While some parts kept me very entertained, others left me a bit "meh". At the moment, maybe because I came during the winter, the full museum didn't seem to be available and only the side galleries were. So my trip there was short but not in a rushed way. I spent about an hour or two there.
Went to see the superb Jankovics exhibition but was also impressed by the other things on display. Beautiful building and helpful staff, as well as a varied and well-curated range of exhibitions. The video stories exhibit was thought-provoking too. Not as challenging as exhibits in other major European cities and the Nationalistic exhibit smacks of govt, but otherwise great.
I was so happy to visit this museum! The exhibit was very interesting and it was a beautiful space to walk through.
Entry cost is under 3,000 forints. 5 different exhibitions which change from time to time. Can be a bit hit or miss with the exhibitions but there's usually 1 really good one at least at all times.
