Budapest is known to be the home of Palinka, juicy sausages, tasty salami, the Chimney Cake, fantastic Christmas markets, beautiful ladies… and awesome art-exhibitions! If the latter is something that interests you, check out these three hot upcoming exhibitions in Budapest!

If you take a look at our list presenting what’s happening in Budapest, you will see that we have just added three exhibitions to the list. They are all to be held in the Museum of Fine Arts, the beautiful museum at your lefthand side as you stand at the Heroes square looking at the statues in front of you (with the City-park in the background).

The Cezanne exhibition in  Budapest

But, what are those three amazing exhibitions that we just referred to?

First, from April 2020 until July 2020, there will be an exhibition about Pharaoh Amenhotep II. His grave was excavated in the Valley of Kings outside Luxor in Egypt in the end of the 19th century, and here you can see a room looking exactly like his grave chamber. There will also be several other interesting artifacts, reliefs, and objects on display.


From June 2020 until September 2020, an exhibition will be held presenting drawings and works by Albrecht Dürer and several of his contemporaries. Of the three mentioned exhibitions, this is the “least interesting” in our eyes, but if you like German art and want to know more about this period, this is still a treat.

The highlight of the year will most likely be the exhibition title From Cezanne to Malevich in the Museum of Fine Arts. Last time the museum hosted a Cezanne exhibition, more than 200,000 visited the event. Can they get even more visitors this time? The exhibition will show more than 50 original Cezanne works, and also bring in paintings and objects from famous museums and institutions such as Albertina in Vienna, The Metropolitan in New York, Musee d’Orsay in Paris, the National Gallery in London, and lots of other places. The exhibition will open in October 2020 and be open until February 2021.
