The Hungarian National MuseumThe Hungarian National Museum (Hungarian: Magyar Nemzeti Mzeum, founded 1802)) is the national museum of Hungary, which collects artefacts of the Hungarian's history and shows them. The main building is in Budapest VIII district and was built is in classicist style between 1837-47 by the architect Mihly Pollack.
Hystory of the museumThe Hungarian National Museum is said to have been founded in 1802 when Count Ferenc Szchnyi set up the National Szchnyi Library. This would then be followed a year later by the donating of a mineral collection by Szchnyis wife. This led to the creation of the Hungarian National Museum as being a natural history museum, and not only a library. In 1807 the Hungarian National Parliament passed legislation on the new institution and asked the nation to help donate to the museum.
The building where the Hungarian National Museum is currently located was built from 1837-1847. The style of the main building was laid out in a neo-classical style and was added onto by other artists in the form of statues, paintings and other architecture.
There has also been a garden that is used primarily for various concerts. Various artists have performed here including Ferenc Liszt. Today the garden is the venue of the Museum Festival.
