Budapest’s Museum of Fine Arts is to open after a three-year renovation on 31 October, the human resources ministry’s state secretary for culture said on Monday.
Alongside new permanent exhibitions, the museum will open with a temporary exhibition marking the approaching 500th anniversary of Leonardo da Vinci’s death, Péter Fekete told reporters.
The reconstructed Romanesque Hall will be open to the public for the first time since it was damaged in WWII.
László Baán, the museum’s director said that during the works, about 40 percent of the building was upgraded.
New exhibition halls have been created and the heating and air conditioning systems have been renewed, he said.
