Museum of Fine Arts
This museum is Hungary's foremost gallery of non-Hungarian works of art, from early times right to the present day. (Hungarian art has its own dedicated "National Gallery", up in the Castle District.) The Fine Arts Museum is a stately neo-Classical building located at Heroes' Square (Hösök tér), at the top end of Andrassy Avenue. The Gallery started in the 1870s with an art collection donated by Archbishop Pyrker of Eger, together with an extensive collection purchased from the Esterhazy family. Today, as well as exhibits of works from ancient times (Egyptian, Roman and Greek) there is a particularly fine collection of Italian art, affording a comprehensive survey of the various schools of painting from the twelfth to the eighteenth centuries. The Spanish collection includes no fewer than seven masterpieces by El Greco.
For individual visitors, the Friends of the Museum of Fine Arts provides free guided tours (in English) in the Collection of Old Master Paintings from Tuesday to Fridays at 11.00. You can also rent an audio guide.
