Museum of Fine Arts in Budapest Now Open
From the Museum Team: Dear visitors! We are glad to welcome you back again from 12 of May, 2021!  Referring to the relevant Government Decree No. 484/2020. (XI. 10.), only persons protected against COVID-19 and minors under the age of 18 accompanied by them are allowed to enter the museum’s exhibitions.

The regulation obliges us to check this condition and to deny entry to those who are unable to present their (valid) Immunity Certificate issued or accepted by the Hungarian authority.

High school students can enter without an immunity certificate, but their age must be proved with ID and can enter only accompanied by a protected adult.

Pursuant to Gov. Decree no. 288/2021 (V.28.) valid during the UEFA EURO 2020 events, immunity certificate is not required for non-Hungarian citizens presenting a ticket to a UEFA EURO 2020 Football Championship (including the matches of the U21 European Championships and the Hungarian Adult Team).

This option is expected to be valid until July 11, 2021.

Presenting a ticket booked online does not guarantee entry in itself.

Please do not forget to bring your immunity certificate and photo identity card.

We recommend and thank you if you wear a MASK with regard to the enclosed space and take care of social distancing.

The Múzeumshop can be visited without immunity certificate but wearing a mask here is mandatory to everyone.

The café is open again for our visitors from 4th of June.
