Take a virtual tour of them all, so you can plan your future cultural and artistic outings. All this while strolling the pretty park that surrounds the National Museum, on whose steps Sándor Petőfi famously and poetically demanded independence from Austria on March 15, 1848.
During May Day(s) at the Museums, those very steps will be the setting for classic and folk concerts, jazz melodies and theatrical productions, all day until the sun sets. It's also a day to get your hands dirty and try some Hungarian crafts. Adults and kids alike can cut and paste, shape some clay, paint a portrait or take photos with the guidance of master craftspeople.
Not feeling so artistic yourself? Buy beautiful creations from professional artists at the courtyard crafts fair. Need to know more about where to go in Hungary? There's also a "cultural tourism" fair with lots of countrysiders on hand to tell you first-hand about their village or region and its attractions.
Plan your next trip discovering Hungary with these friendly folk, who'll most likely be offering discounts as well. Did we mention that this delightful day of cultural discovery is free?
Join in anytime, from morning to night!
Merry Museum Day!
