The Hungarian National Museum, established in 1802, is Hungary's  national museum for the history, art, and archaeology of the Carpathian Basin and Hungary. The museum was founded after Count Ferenc Széchényi (1754 - 1820), one of Hungary's most eminent aristocrats at the time, had donated his collection of books, medals and antiquities to his country.

This donation has been followed by many others ever since, whereas today the museum's permanent collection features over one million works.

The building, one of the most beautiful classicist palaces of Hungary, was designed by Mihály Pollack and finished around 1846.
