Located right on the Danube, you can walk around outside to enjoy the view after seeing some modern art in a new building, adjacent to a huge concert hall. Lovers of modern/contemporary art will be happy.

hidden within the National Theater building without any signs this museum is here. Only a few exhibits available, and not particularly worth the effort.

The museum has a permanent collection, but more interesting are the temporary exhibitons. If you by chance have a ticket for any event in the MÜPA - concert, etc. - than with this ticket you can visit also the museum.
