Museum
“UPDATE: The museum closed in the fall of 2017 to start the full reconstruction and expansion and will possibly reopen in 2022. The building of the Museum of Applied Arts (Iparművészeti Múzeum) is one of the finest examples of Hungarian Art-Nouveau architecture. Its Zsolnay porcelain tiles are reminiscent of Islamic and Hindu architecture. Its interior on the other hand, is pure white, blending various architectural styles. In addition to the permanent exhibition of Hungarian craftsmanship and artwork, the building hosts numerous design events and temporary modern exhibitions as well. ”
