A large part of the collection is on display in the central bank’s offices and common areas. However, the installation of the art pieces is dynamic, with works often being relocated and rotated to be displayed in further exhibition venues, enrichening the context of important exhibitions both in Hungary and abroad.
MNB Arts and Culture, the division responsible for the care and management of the collection, is to make the collection accessible and meaningful to the public. The collection’s contemporary material was digitalised during the pandemic and made available to the public through our virtual platform. We also actively collaborate with the museums of Hungary through art loans; thus, the works selected from our collection can enrichen, for example, an important retrospective exhibition of an artist’s lifetime achievements. We have established our venue for temporary exhibitions in the MNB Buda Centre (1013 Budapest, Krisztina körút 55.). We aim to attract and involve a broad audience by implementing various accompanying events, museum educational programmes and dialogue-initiating tours.
