Network Budapest Museum of Applied Arts Museum

The Museum of Applied Arts in Budapest was founded in 1872 by the Hungarian Parliament. Its founding director general was György Ráth (1828-1905) followed by Jenő Radisics (1856–1917), both esteemed Hungarian art collectors. The museum has one of the world's largest collections of applied arts, Hungarian and international, historical and contemporary. The museum has a rich permanent collection, including Art Nouveau pieces, ceramics, furniture, glass, gold ware and design pieces, and also hosts temporary exhibitions. Today the museum is has a strong focus on collecting contemporary Hungarian pieces. Currently closed due to renovation work, the collection can be browsed online and educational programmes have been relocated to the György Ráth Villa, which is also showcasing a selection of the museum’s Art Nouveau collection.
