Museum Of Fine Arts (Budapest)
The Museum of Fine Arts (Hungarian: Szépművészeti Múzeum ) is a museum in Heroes' Square, Budapest, Hungary, facing the Palace of Art.

The museum's collection is made up of international art (other than Hungarian), including all periods of European art, and comprises more than 100,000 pieces. The collection is made up of various older additions such as those from Buda Castle, the Esterházy and Zichy estates, as well as donations from individual collectors. The Museum's collection is made up of six departments: Egyptian, Antique, Old sculpture gallery, Old painter gallery, Modern collection, Graphics collection. The institution celebrated its centenary in 2006.
