Welcome to the website of the House of Hungarian Art Nouveau – the Magyar Szecesszió Háza.
It is unique in Hungary, that a gallery or a museum is dedicated entirely to the Secession style.
We didn’t just rebuild the house and the interior decoration, but we built around it the
atmosphere of this style, the atmosphere of turn of the century Hungarian peacetime.
The house was built by Emil Vidor in 1903, for the Bedő family. The contemporary furniture,
decorative objects, paintings and instruments displayed on more than 600 square meters
faithfully evoke the beginning of the twentieth century. In this way, the museum gives
insight to the visitor into the "peace-times", the atmosphere of bourgeois
life of Budapest.
The masters of Art Nouveau, today's scholars and allied arts are regularly presented in temporary
exhibitions on the building's lower level. The House of Hungarian Art Nouveau is giving space
also to artistic round-table discussions. From April this year, turn of the century music programs
are waiting for the visitors, namely on the last Saturday of each month.
Near the artistic quality decorations and enterieurs arranged on the three levels of the
exhibition space there is a coffee shop, where every morning freshly baked croisants, and
throughout the day homemade pastries and cookies, coffee specialities, tea and hot chocolate
are waiting for our dear guests.
