A Redoubt into the Redoute
Pesti Vigadó, which opened its gates to the general public in 1865, has been functioning as a centre of social life in all ages.
It provided a venue not only to concerts by Strauss, Liszt, Erkel, Wagner, Bartók and Dohnányi, but also to the first Hungarian exhibition organised by the association Art Society of Pest, to the first representative parliamentary session, to the presentation of Louis Bleriot's aeroplane XI to the general public, and to the most popular balls in any age.
As of 2014, the maintenance and management of the building have been overseen by Pesti Vigadó Nonprofit Ltd., acting on behalf of the owner of the building the Hungarian Academy of Arts, which latter institution aims to continue sustaining and preserving the cultural diversity and the high quality of arts so far continually characterising Pesti Vigadó. The quality of the events realised in the previous years and our visitor figures both prove that Pesti Vigadó succeeded in reclaiming the position it formerly well-deserved held not only in Hungary's cultural life but also as a tourist destination situated in the heart of Hungary's capital city.

About the Museum
The Museum of Fine Arts, opened in 1906, is reputed to be among Europe’s most prominent museums. Its multi-faceted collections and their historical continuity coupled with the large number of masterpieces undoubtedly earn it a prestigious place among public collections. The Museum of Fine Arts displays the treasures of international and Hungarian art spanning from ancient times to the end of the eighteenth century, while its large-scale temporary exhibitions attract hundreds of thousands of visitors.
After the most comprehensive reconstruction project in its history, the museum re-opened at the end of 2018. Thanks to the modernisation, the Museum of Fine Arts now satisfies twenty-first-century requirements for collection care and visitor engagement.
