Dear visitors!

We are waiting you in the building of the National Archives of Hungary on the Bécsi kapu square. The historicist archival palace  was built according to the plans of Samu Pecz, which contains many wonders and interesting small details. The ornated column capitals, coat of armses of noble families and murals by the renowned artist of the age, Andor Dudits, bring to life different periods of the Hungarian history. You can admire the stained glass windows of Miksa Róth or the works of Laura Kőrösfői-Kriesch, who weaved the space separator carpets that survived the Second World War.

In our exhibition hall we are presenting temporary exhibitions, based on our written heritage.

Visit us, we’re open!

If the group is bigger than a group of 20 people we have to split the group into smaller ones becasue of security reasons and also because of the building's architectural design. In this case we provide the guided tour in the same time for the smaller groups in order to keep the time-frame.

Taking pictures is only allowed with the permission of the tour guide.
