Pretty impressive collection of European art! No idea Hungarians are such talented artists! Make sure to go to the rooftop terrace - great views of the river and Pest!

Amazing collection of Hungarian painting, mostly 19th century. It also hosts some of the Museum of Arts collection since this one is permanently closed until next year.

Great colllection of Hungarian painting of all periods. A real pity the interiors of the Royal Palace are totally unrecognisable from their former glory

We initially visited the gallery to beat the heat on a very hot summers day. But were very impressed by the gallery's collection on Dutch and Flemmish masters. Definitely worth visiting.

Super nice exebition. Both the permanent and the special exebition. Well curated, good storytelling. Fantastic spotlight on the pictures. We spent more than 4 hours taking in all the experiences.

A museum with many pieces of art by European artists. The museum could do with a suggested route for visitors who do not purchase the audioguide.
