Founded in 1872, the Museum of Applied Arts is
one of the oldest museums of art and design on the continent. The palace
housing the museum was built in 1896, and is one of the most beautiful Art Nouveau
buildings of the capital. The core of the collection is made up by masterpieces
of European decorative arts from the Middle Ages to the present day.
Highlights from the collection can be seen in
the permament exhibition of the museum, as well as in the Nagytétény Castle
