3.9
#11 of 82 in Museums in Budapest
See masterpieces from the treasury of one of the wealthiest Hungarian aristocratic families, the Esterházys, at Museum of Applied Arts. The museum houses a collection of furniture from Gothic to Biedermeier, textiles, glass, gold- and silverware, Turkish weapons, and aristocratic garments and jewelry. Look for a table decoration showing the triumph of Bacchus, which was made by famous Augsburg goldsmith Abraham I. Drentwett. The permanent exhibit features nearly 400 artworks, a selection of objects from Asian and Northern-African Islamic countries, and 17th- through 19th-century clocks and watches. The museum has been collecting Hungarian contemporary artworks since the 1950s. The building itself is a piece of art, with its green roof and the interior designed in Hindu, Mogul, and Islamic styles.

  • If you are interested in the applied and decorative arts this museum is a must see. In particular the ceramics and furniture are noteworthy. Nice little canteen in the lobby with nice staff.  more »

  • Visited the Museum of applied art and greatly regretted time spent ... Luxury building, but the complete desolation inside. ... not a single visitor. Not surprisingly, if you look at the pictures: there's nothing to watch! Horror! Any shoes in large quantities without system and stories and old photos ... And several national costumes. More and remember nothing ... Exposition on the life and lifestyle of the Hungarians begins in photos funeral and funeral rites. Probably to discourage further viewing interest. And the building is a luxury, monumental and majestic ... But visiting this museum is not worth it

  • we had our wedding-party in the entrance hall. It was really great and beautiful!
  • Amazing art nouveau building, in a poor state. The collection is a bit disappointing. Very nice objects but so few furniture!
  • Architecture of Art Nouveau, third oldest applied arts museum in the world. Nice atrium ! very near central market.
  • Amazing but closed the day I went!
  • Beautiful building inside and outside. Worth visiting. Art nouveau style.
