The Hungarian National Gallery is housed, just like one of the most important history museums of Budapest (the Buda Castle Museum of History), in the famed Buda Castle, filling several sections of this historical edifice (and it has been located here since 1975, 18 years after its foundation).

Roughly speaking, the collections it displays consist of fine art products, and, by force of these collections which amount to more than 100,000 exhibits, the National Gallery is the largest museum of fine arts in Hungary.

Pictorial and sculptural masterpieces arranged by genres, historical periods and individual artists, are the chief highlights of the gallery, but visitors should also pay attention to the Medieval and Renaissance stone carvings and to the medal art during the 19th and the 20th century.

The fact that the gallery is also available for hosting temporary exhibitions goes without saying, given its reputation and status.
