The Museum of Ethnography in Budapest is an important specialised museum at European level. Now, with the inauguration of its new building in 2022, it has become one of the most modern ethnographic museums in the world. The new building has been constructed at the entrance to the City Park, one of Budapest’s oldest green spaces, based on a design created by the company Napur Architect. Tracing a curve of 1 kilometre in diameter, the two wings of the building support a roof garden planted with a variety of shrubs and perennials, which rises to the height of the crowns of the surrounding trees.
Below ground level, the almost 7,000 square metres of exhibition space will host both temporary and permanent displays. Above it can be found a bookshop, a restaurant, a library, a documentation centre, co-working facilities, a visitors’ centre, an events centre, and an interactive museum for children, making the museum an important venue in terms of the city’s cultural life. - via www.neprajz.hu
