Permanent exhibition

The art of furniture-making from the Gothic to the Biedermeier

The furniture exhibition staged in the Museum presents the most important works in the furniture collection at the Museum of Applied Arts, Budapest. Over the many years of its growth, this collection has become unique in its own right. The most significant examples of its holdings from Hungary and abroad were acquired in the period up to 1914; in the years after 1945 it was primarily the 18th- and 19th-century sections that were augmented.

Masterworks of Watch Making from the Radvánszky Collection

These masterworks from the 17-19th centuries are not only significant because of their perfectly decorated appearance, but because they are authentic documents of our history. As the result of Ferenc Radvánszky’s work, the collection of luxury pieces, embracing 300 years of history, includes significant and unique watch pieces, which cannot be seen in any other collection in Hungary. Another unique aspect of the exhibition is that each structure of these watches still work!
