Ludwig Museum of Contemporary Art information
Housed in the architecturally controversial Palace of Arts opposite the National Theatre, the Ludwig Museum holds Hungary’s most important collection of international contemporary art. Works by American, Russian, German and French artists span the past 50 years, while Hungarian, Czech, Slovakian, Romanian, Polish and Slovenian works date from the 1990s. The museum also holds frequent and very well received temporary exhibitions. Note that the permanent collection closes at 6pm.
