Kiscell Museum - Budapest History Museum

Castles & Country Houses, Monuments & Sites, Museums & Art Centres
The Kiscell Museum, a division of the Budapest History Museum, is housed in an 18th-century monastery, which was converted in 1910 into a luxurious mansion by the art collector and furniture manufacturer, Max Schmidt.

The museum contains three excellent sections; a complete 19th-century apothecary brought from Kálvin tér, a collection of ancient signboards advertising shops and other trades, and rooms  in empire, Biedermeier and art nouveau furniture.

There is also an impressive collection of works by artists József Rippl-Rónai, Lajos Tihanyi, István Csók and Béla Czóbel and organised by the Municipal Picture Gallery (Fővárosi Képtár). The stark Gothic church shell is used for temporary multimedia and art exhibits.
