Tips and hints for your Museum Visit


  • Always keep yourself informed about current opening times and temporary exhibitions on our website.
  • Young and Old should try to be well rested before throwing themselves into the great adventure of the Museum visit!
  • Since no food and drinks are allowed within the museum's exhibition spaces please make sure that your child has eaten and is well hydrated before the visit commences!
  • Prior to your visit discuss with your child what can and what cannot be done in the museum: we want to protect the art works, this is why we will not touch them!
  • Less is sometimes more: since children cannot take in too much information in one go show them no more than 3 or 4 artworks per visit.
  • After your visit revisit all you have seen together and talk about what your child can remember about the art works at home.
  • Our Museum Educators also offer programmes for families to which you are most welcome to attend! Please see below for the following programme options. 

Enjoy your Museum visit! Have fun!

Let us take the worry of organising a Birthday Party for your little one from your mind! Offer them the unique experience of celebrating at the Hungarian National Gallery! Museums offer a dynamic opportunity to expose children to experiences and explore new things in a rich cultural environment. In the exhibition space children have the ability to take ownership of their own learning and develop and explore their own curiosities. This unique exposure provides the foundation for creativity, critical thinking, and connection to the world around them. Allow your children and their friends to be immersed in this fantastic microcosm! 


The Birthday Party hosted at the Hungarian National Gallery is composed of three parts, all building up on one another. The program commences with a visit to the Gallery where the children are encouraged to discover the collection through fun tasks. Afterwards they are given a chance to unleash their creative potential during a craft session held in our studio. Last but not least in the remaining 20-30 minutes a traditional celebration is held. Parents are asked to provide the cake and beverages.
