Why visit: music history, piano concerts
The Liszt Ferenc Memorial Museum is dedicated to the famous Hungarian piano virtuoso, composer and music teacher of the 19th century.
The museum is located in the Old Academy of Music, founded by Liszt, where the great composer had a 1st-floor apartment. Liszt spent a significant part of the last five years (from 1881 to 1886) of his life here and his furniture, portraits, books, pianos along with other personal belongings are on display. Equipped with a concert hall, musical performances are held in the museum every Saturday at 11 am (price is included in the entrance fee).
In the hall you can see a copper plate, which was on the door of Liszt's apartment, saying that 'Ferenc Liszt is at home between 3 pm and 4 pm on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays'.
