Kiscelli Museum

Why visit: 20th century Hungarian art, contemporary art exhibits

The Kiscelli Museum in Óbuda, built between 1745 and 1760 in Baroque style, houses the Municipal Picture Gallery of Budapest. The gallery's art collection showcases the art of 20th century Hungarian artists as well as contemporary exhibits.

Hidden in the hills of Óbuda, the complex originally served as a church and a monastery. The city inherited the buildings in 1935 when the former owner,  Miksa Schmidt, a Viennese antique dealer, left it to the city in his will.

The Kiscelli Museum also houses exhibits focusing on Budapest's history, curated by the Budapest History Museum.
