Also known as the Magyaw Szecesszio Haza, the House of Hungarian Art Nouveau in Budapest is the only museum in Hungary dedicated to the Secession style of art. The house itself, called the House Bedo, was built at the turn of the twentieth century in a style that combines traditional Hungarian design with elements of Belgian Art Nouveau. Beyond the remarkable green façade, visitors will find a collection of family portraits, paintings, porcelain and period furniture, including more than 20 unique cabinets and an entire dining room set complete with a table, chairs, dish cupboard, glassware cupboard and porcelain display case. The two-story lobby features a large stained glass lamp and stained glass windows are prominent throughout the interior courtyard.
Located in the center of Budapest, the House of Hungarian Art Nouveau can be reached from the Kossuth ter stop on Metro Line 2 or the Arany Janos utca stop on Metro Line 3. The museum has its own café which serves coffee, tea and pastries and is also furnished in an Art Nouveau style. It is open from 8am to 7pm Monday to Friday and from 9am to 5pm on Saturday.
