Hungarian National Gallery, Budapest Reviews - Write a Review
Nice museum adjacent to the palace up on Buda hill. Had some very interesting artwork . both modern and traditional focusing on Hungarian artists over the past several hundred years. Its a beautiful building with spectacular views down across the Danube.
Staff were unfriendly and enforcing rules which I saw as completely pointless. I was told off for walking down stairs in the wrong direction, and told that I was not allowed to wear a jacket into the gallery and had to tie it around my waist, still baffled why. Also the collection is very hit and miss, it's a complete mish mash of random bits of art spanning from medieval times until the present day. The worst part of the exhibition was a room filled with around 20 portraits of people looking bored. In a way, this was the best part of the exhibition because it was a good visual representation of how the gallery made me feel. The experience was topped off by a man in the toilet grunting and saying "oh my god" as he urinated.
Very interesting gallery. Hungary is amazing country full of interesting history. Must visit!
The staff work there are unfriendly. I don't really understand what I did wrong as a tourist to make them so unhappy. I was very frustrated by difficulties communicating with more than 1 person here. I ended up leaving without bothering to get the ticket. Just wanted to let you know that what we, as visitors, see the city and the people from you.
Fine art from all centuries in Hungarys rich history well presented at unique location. Love it!
